With input from experts arriving from Berlin and all over Germany as well as international inspiration we developed new insights and exchanged ideas about the issues that are relevant to us. Relevant not only for the daily work in our businesses, but also relevant for the vision of a common new food culture.
We talked about how culinary training might be recast for our modern world. How can agriculture better structure itself for renewability? How are quality and taste created in the fields? As a farmer or chef, how can and must I harness digital channels for my business, and what is successful storytelling?
These focus sessions were framed by a podium discussion and a keynote speech. The day further concluded with a shared dinner, that gave attendees another chance to network and discuss their experiences.
The event was held mainly in german language.
