Key Note Speaker: Jonathan Bloom
Bloom will be our keynote speaker at the upcoming one-day conference. Jonathan is a journalist and consultant on the topic of food waste, who wrote the book American Wasteland and created the website Wasted Food
He has spoken on food waste in places as far-ranging as Santiago to San Francisco to Singapore and consulted with the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organisation, Harvard Law School, Natural Resources Defense Council and General Mills. A Boston native, Jonathan now lives in Durham, NC, with his wife, two sons and many, many containers for leftovers.
Auckland Council has come on board and are giving us financial assistance with bringing Jonathan over and are helping us to pay his speaking fee.
We’ll be following lunch with a panel discussion featuring local and international experts focusing on the future of food in New Zealand and around the world. Where we are heading, what are the trends that will shape what and how we eat in the next few years? It promises to be lively conversation with lots of opportunity for questions.
