Event Details

Reimagine, Prototype & 

Build the Future of Meat

 

Food+Tech Connect, GRACE Communications and Applegate are bringing together technologists, entrepreneurs, creatives, policy experts, non-profit leaders and industry executives to develop technologies and tools that help democratize meat.

Over the course of the weekend, “steakholders” will work with teams and The Design Gym facilitators to rapidly prototype innovative solutions to business or consumer education challenges in the following areas:

 

Production:  Develop tools to help small- and medium-sized ranchers more efficiently and sustainably manage herds, process meat and sell direct to consumers or wholesale buyers.

Health:  Minimize or eliminate the use of antibiotics and improve animal health.

Processing: Design ways for processors to more easily demonstrate that they are complying with federal regulations, manage processing demand and access financing.

Distribution:  Streamline the process of selling “non-choice” cuts of meat, and improve the efficiency and financial viability of getting meat from farm to buyer.

Consumption:  Improve consumer insights research, education on the benefits of sustainable meat and empower informed consumption.
