Agtech Building Food’s Future

April 26, 2022

Urban Agriculture, Automation, Fintech and Cellular Agriculture

We know technology is transforming food’s future. But which technologies will be most impactful?

CityAge’s third installment of this Food’s Future Series will profile the most promising agtech solutions, and how they can solve major challenges. Geospatial tools, data, automation, fintech, and cellular agriculture are on the frontlines of addressing climate change, supply chain disruptions, and food waste. They’re helping the world drive down carbon emissions, grow the economy, and make fresh, local, and healthier food more available.

CityAge took a look at how these technologies are building the future of food, how we can invest in them, and how cities can implement them.
