The relationship between people and their food has changed dramatically over the past few decades. More and more we want to know more about our food, like where it came from and what went into making it. Unfortunately, demand is outstripping supply – government and industry are struggling to keep up with consumers’ hunger for food information. With consumers asking for more transparency than ever before, it is time for the food industry to step up.
You may use a fancy mixer or even a blowtorch to come up with cordon bleu creations in the kitchen, but the heart of the home is about to get more high tech.
A 3D food printer by XYZ in Taiwan can create tasty treats by layering ingredients before they are baked in an oven.
The machine is currently capable of printing foods including biscuits, pizzas and chocolate cake decorations – and the list is growing.
From Orlando Sentinel, Orlando tech, food startups land on ABC’s ‘Shark Tank.’
Central Florida entrepreneur Chris Gilpin still pinches himself when he thinks about the season premiere of ABC’s Shark Tank.
Gilpin, 34, of DeBary was selected from about 30,000 applicants to be on national TV pitching his product for this season. He managed to get on the season premiere, set for 9 p.m. on Sept. 25, which will include special guest shark Ashton Kutcher.
“When I got the call that I was going to pitch to Ashton Kutcher and the others, it was beyond excitement. I was euphoric. It was like the biggest moment for the company so far,” Gilpin said. “And then the email arrived that I actually made the final cut to be on air. Sometimes I stop and ask myself, ‘Is this really happening to me?’”
Word that Americans throw away about one-third of our available food has been getting around.
Now there’s an official goal aimed at reducing that waste.
Today, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Environmental Protection Agency — along with many private-sector and food-bank partners — announced the first ever national target for food waste.
“[We’re] basically challenging the country to reduce food waste by 50 percent by the year 2030,” Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack tells The Salt.
