Session II Food and cultural diversity
Individualized need and globalized food provision will substantially change the idea of growth economics. Not for the first time in our history, food is the enhancer of a global change in economics. This time, the change will take the direction from a quantity based (food) economics to a quality based one. Individualized and value driven food economics impacts a change in established growth economics and will change substantially our idea of economy. AI can be used and can support an individualized and quality determined food request and thus also change our idea of food production and provision. In the process, all fields will change: demand, production and logistics. This quality-based economy contains an opportunity to address today’s challenges for an economy that conserves resources and protects the environment, while at the same time taking greater account of individual and different needs.
