Summary

#3DPrinting

Straight out of Star Trek, 3D printing offers the promise of revolutionary change in manufacturing and supply chain management. We pose the question: Is it also the futurist solution to global food scarcity? This path-breaking technology—now available at your local Staples—holds the potential of nutrient-rich food that can be produced locally and on-demand. Is there a solution here that meets global food requirements without the strain on natural resources generated by the Green Revolution, and one that bypasses the privatization of food chains? Two leading thinkers in agriculture and technology innovation join forces with a renowned corporate head of sustainability and visionary robotics engineer to explore the implications of 3D printed food. Join the discussion and challenge your assumptions.
