1-3 OctoberKulturkvarteret


Welcome to the conference Spot on Food 2024, where we will explore the theme “Resilient Systems” through three perspectives: Entrepreneurship Diversity Preparedness.

Spot on Food is organised by Krinova - Sweden's largest and first incubator and science park with a focus on the food sector.

Join – and be empowered!

If we are determined enough, finding the solutions is possible

What to expect:

  • Learn about the latest insights and trends within sustainable food and agricultural innovation.
  • Meet the bravest and brightest entrepreneurs.
  • Focused networking through AI-powered matchmaking.
  • Enjoy the test kitchen “The Mindful Kitchen & Bar”, where you'll be served food and drinks from Swedish startups and local farms.
  • Engage in meaningful discussions over lunch with scientists and experts.
  • Take part in side events on Build up Day. I.e. Community dinner. For those who would like to dig even deeper into sustainable food production, there will also be an exclusive optional add-on Food road trip to some really innovative farmers/food producers near Kristianstad.

Parallel with this whole day conference Krinova also hosts the innovation competition Food Hack 1-3 October. The final and price ceremony will be part of the conference program. More information and tickets for the Food Hack.

Be inspired by the brightest minds

The food system is navigating a new risk landscape, where one crisis often follows the next. We see a world situation with uncertainty in many places, floods, drought, energy crisis, and food and water scarcity. How can we adapt to these risks, increase preparedness, and make our food system more resilient? As essential as food is for human survival and well-being, it also poses significant challenges for the environment and society. But in the food system, we also find the solutions to many challenges. Join us in exploring how we can feed a growing population without compromising the health of the planet and its people while fostering innovation that is inclusive, equitable, competitive, and sustainable.

That's what Spot on Food is all about!
