MAD Food Camp 2018 Tackles Major Issues In Food Industry

This year, chess, environmental thinkers, and scientists gather at MAD Food Camp, a TED-talk like food festival in Copenhagen to discuss the growing food industry around the world.


Beyond High End Restaurants

Tourists around the world look forward to luxurious dining experiences when they travel. Planning their vacations, it isn’t uncommon to see someone look for the best ร้านอาหารไทยหรูกรุงเทพ, or the most popular bar in the country, and this is understandable—everyone wants a great vacation. However, people in the industry explain that people should care about the industry beyond knowing that’s the best ร้านอาหารไทยหรูกรุงเทพ, or which pool bar has the best drinks.


Mind the Gap

This year’s theme is “Mind the Gap,” which speaks not only about the gap between men and women in various fields and industries, but also on the disconnect that some people fail to perceive in terms of the food they eat and how it impacts the environment.


Women in the Industry

For a long time, men have dominated the MAD Food Camp. This year, however, the tides seemed to have changed, and MAD6 was presented and mainly ran by women. There were fewer celebrities, but more women in the industry. Hollywood producer Lynda Obst shared her experience in the industry, which was similar to the tales of women in the food industry. She said that for a long time, men dominated Hollywood, and young women were angry with men for that. At that time, some women were mad at other women who were successful, and she hopes that maybe now, the times have changed, and women can be everywhere, safe, without hate for those who make it big.


Changing Agriculture

Aside from the emerging power of women in the industry, experts have also talked about drastically changing the way we do agriculture so that it can be more sustainable in the future. They believe that regenerative agriculture is the key. That is, fewer animals and better grassland management is the future that they want. They argue that through changes on how agriculture is done, they can help reverse the effects of climate change in thirty years.
