Hack the Future of Food at #FoodHackLDN
FoodHack is the first innovation-driving food tech event of it's kind in London. It is about creating solutions to real food industry problems. Focused on food and agricultural technology, our hackathon is bringing together industry-leading brands and top talent to tackle the challenge of nutrition.
We're looking for developers, designers, biz dev-ers and all round food enthusiasts to join us for a weekend of problem solving, and building the solutions of tomorrow, that the food industry needs today. Together we will be tackling the Jamie Oliver challenge:
How can we use technology to make healthy eating cool for a generation of young people brought up in a culture where less healthy brands have the biggest marketing budgets?
