Many things can be said about Food in the Capital – one thing is that it’s a play on words. It embraces the Nations Capital, it includes the entire Capital Region and regions beyond and it’s also about finding the Human and Financial Capital to build a new food industry, a unique City-Region Cooperative that could be replicated across the nation. All of this against the backdrop of an unprecedented drought hammering farmers, water scarcity and the perennial challenges of social disadvantage, waste, health and nutrition.  

We are gathering some of Australia and world’s leading food experts and local and regional food success stories, airing the challenges, mixed in with practical demonstrations of transformative technologies for business; more local, affordable and nutritious food at your doorstep and a sustainable food-ecosystem that builds a community.
