Note from the editor


 

What does the future of food look like?


 


That’s a pretty big question that’s hard to definitively answer. It’s also a question that I’m going to be talking about today as part of a panel at the International Food Information Council’s Food Innovation Summit.


 


I like to think that a major part of my job as an editor of a food publication is observing the business, focusing in on trends and constantly hypothesizing how the industry will evolve over the next several years. I’ll be sharing my viewpoint alongside people who work for companies that are actually shaping the future of the food business: Memphis Meats Vice President of Product and Regulation Eric Schulze, JUST Head of Communications Andrew Noyes and FONA Director of Marketing Tracy Cesario.


 


As we move into the future, the innovation, discoveries and products coming from Memphis Meats, JUST and FONA — and many others — will continue to be powerful forces in the food business. But how will things change, and how will they stay the same? While I can’t know for sure, I can make this pledge: Food Dive will be there to tell you about it as it’s happening.


 


Thanks, as always, for reading.
