In at Future Food Systems CRC headquarters, we’re busy organising our inaugural Future of Food Summit, scheduled for Thursday 1 and Friday 2 December 2022 at QUT’s Kelvin Grove and Garden Point, Brisbane campuses.

The Summit will drive discussion on topical issues central to the CRC’s mission: to develop smart, sustainable, resilient food systems that capitalise on our nation’s unique strengths, ensure Australian agrifood products have a competitive edge in key target markets, and shore up food security in coming decades.

Our expanding Summit speaker contingent includes industry, academic and government leaders from across the CRC’s cohort and beyond. Five weeks out, we can confirm:

Indigenous chef-restaurateur, two-times MasterChef contestant, TV culinary series host and sustainable foods champion Mindy Woods will MC our Gala Dinner on the evening of 1 December at Queensland Museum in Brisbane’s CBD. Ms Woods will also work with the Museum’s executive chef to craft a bespoke Indigenous-flavoured entree for the occasion.

Throughout the Summit, gourmet local caterers FigJam & Co. will provide lunches and morning and afternoon teas featuring native ingredients.

We’ve got more speakers and expert panellists in the pipeline. Stay tuned for further announcements.
