Food is a basic necessity for every human being on earth. The way we will produce and consume our food in the future has an impact on ourselves, our environment and our society.

Food to be shows how technology and design can answer these questions. The Netherlands is one of the world's largest agricultural exporters and is internationally renowned for its technological knowledge and design talent. Therefore, the Netherlands can play an important role in the challenges of the future with its partners in the European Union.

On the basis of five themes, we explore together with leading Dutch designers how our future food system will shape.
