Lincoln Hub has teamed up with the Foundation for Arable Research (FAR), AgMARDT & Callaghan Innovation to create a unique challenge, powered by Lincoln University & Creative HQ.

Food presents some of the most dauntingly complex problems around. No good solution can be designed without a careful understanding of the users and interconnected environmental, farming, processing and supply systems.

From pea and insect proteins to synthetic milks and alternative “meats,” the food technology revolution is well underway. Is New Zealand ready to take part in this food movement? How can we sustainably feed our planet’s rapidly-growing population (8.5 billion by 2030)? How can we innovate to create New Zealand’s future agricultural and food industries? Are plant-based protein solutions part of the answer?
