Episode 1: What is Food Disruption and Why is it Important?

Food security, climate change, and energy deployment are among the many issues we face today. These challenges demand innovative solutions and a transdisciplinary approach to collaborative problem-solving. Issues in food like preservation, nutrition, and disease prevention are becoming even more prevalent. To meet these challenges head-on, we must replace conventional strategies with provocative ideas and disruptive innovations. In this first episode of “Food Disruptors,” Dr. Joshua Peschel and Prof. John Coupland discuss disruptive moments in the science of food, what form future food disruption may take, and why investing in science of food entrepreneurship is vital to the future of food sustainability.
