Chief Executive Officer - Food Innovation Centre, Monash University
The global consumer is continuously evolving and demanding more from the actors in the food and agriculture value chain. With the growing focus on the intersection of Food, Health, Nutrition, Wellness and Digitisation. The time is ripe for both innovation and disruption to bring new sustainable innovations to market that continue to win the hearts and minds of the global consumer. Personally, I see many possibilities for food and Agriculture businesses to collaborate and co-create not just new product innovations but new business models that address the key resource challenges we face. As a global consumer myself, I am demanding food for me, wherever I maybe and whenever I want it. The possibilities are endless and truly exciting.
