Strike Two Summit - Consumer Trust

What can technology really do for companies in the food industry? With a continuous decrease of consumer trust, is the industry preparing to respond? How can the industry prepare itself for the upcoming 5-10 years?

This is exactly why all of these players in the food sector teamed up, to organise the Strike Two Summit in Amsterdam on 19 and 20 September 2019. Here’s the list of partners: Ahold Delhaize, Deloitte, IBM, Unilever, CGIAR, CTA, FAO, ScanTrust, Municipality of Amsterdam, Amsterdam Economic Board, NAJK, BlueNumber, Tykn, RVO.

In order to help food professionals understand technology, the Strike Two Summit showcases existing technological solutions. It brings together industry leaders, start-ups, investors, governments, research facilities and civil society together in one place. This Summit is not about building new technologies, it’s about using existing technologies to create new solutions in our food systems. Being in a workshop type environment, instead of a ‘sit back and listen’ type, you will be gaining a clearer understanding about what technology can and cannot do for you and your company.

What can you expect from the Summit? Take a look at this video.

The goal is to help you gain a clearer understanding of wether or not these new technologies can be beneficial to you. And, if so, what are the next steps you need to take to benefit from these new solutions.

The Summit is a series of events that will happen throughout the year, but the first one is labeled “Consumer Trust". It will tackle topics like Food Safety, Food Quality and Food circularity.
