The first Online Digital Global Food Summit on April 28th and 29th, 2021 from the Wagner Salons at Theresienhöhe. Stephan Becker-Sonnenschein, Head and Founder, states that “The future is a state of mind, and it has a name: Bioeconomy. We are today where we would never have dreamed of being ten years ago. We produce edible proteins from CO2, bacteria and energy, we produce lettuce in space or in polar ice and we can predict future flavors and thus sales markets with artificial intelligence.”

Inviting international guests and start-ups to the event, he asks “So are we at the beginning of a bioeconomic age?” and says “Europe has consistently taken the path in this direction with the Green Deal. But what does this mean for our agriculture, for our society and for our cultivation and production methods along the food chain? And what does it mean in the global race to innovate in the food sector? Because progress is in an acceleration phase and this is taking place in China, in the Asian region and in the USA.”
