It is not possible for one to think about food and technology at the same time. However, it cannot be denied either that the technology has played a significant role in shaping the food world. Whether it was innovating the modern techniques of irrigation or promoting farming from the days of oxen-led plowing to modern harvesting methods based on tractors, technology has always been in the forefront to catapult the food sector to an economy’s forefront.

Latest studies and market surveys have revealed that technology especially the digital technology services such as Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, Table 8, and OpenTable can also have a big impact on the food industry since there are thousands of food bloggers who are writing on just about anything related to food and latest food trends that anyone can think about. 

San Francisco held a very interesting conference last week which was organized in the San Fransisco 49ers’ stadium. The conference was called Bite Silicon Valley. It was organized by Octagon Culinary. Many prominent names from the industry were invited to the conference, which included eminent speakers and chefs from the most celebrated restaurants to speak about the problems which the food industry is facing presently. The most important concern that was addressed to in the conference is how by 2050, the food industry will be able to feed a plant of 9 billion people. 

The company was hosted in Silicon Valley since leading names from the tech industry like Yahoo and Google has started to collaborate with the food industry to initiate major research projects to analyze the future of food. In fact an increasing number of capitalists belonging from the Sand Hill Road have started to place significant bets on a range of food technology and services. Such collaborations between the food and tech industries will help world to resolve problems related to food crisis which may occur in future.
