CIA Partners with MIT Media Lab to “reThink Food”

Food, technology, and design touch each of our lives every day. With the link between the three constantly becoming stronger, the CIA, in collaboration with MIT Media Lab, holds its fourth annual reThink Food® conference in November at the CIA at Copia. The thought-provoking program is designed to help leaders drive change in an uncertain future, as well as better understand likely short-term impacts of long-range trends.

“In just the first half of this year alone, we’ve seen everything from e-commerce giants purchasing brick and mortar food powerhouses to self-driving pizza delivery cars, and a continued shift toward plant-forward menus and increasing aspiration for a more sustainable food supply,” said Greg Drescher, CIA vice president of strategic initiatives and industry leadership. “reThink Food will help leaders understand the current intersection of food and technology and prepare for what’s next—the challenges and opportunities that will define our industry in the next few years and beyond.”
