Adrian will present on technology as an enabler for making better food choices

Summary With 64% of the world’s population now following some form of exclusion diet, the segment of people that require tailored food choices, often with multiple requirements, is larger than it has ever been. This presents a difficulty for people trying to find the right foods either due to allergies, intolerances or to improve overall health. Technology is an enabler of making
better food decisions. Spoon Guru are helping people find foods easier. This presentation
will explore latest insights and technologies and how they can in turn promote public health
messages.
