It’s astonishing how much of our everyday uses are highly dependent on cheap oil. The food systems in our culture are without exception, and evolved over the last 30 years that is also centralized and fragile. More so then ever we face obstacles and challenges never seen before and will only be more overwhelming in the next 30 years without startups standing up and making new technologies to help, in relation to energy prices, population increase and environmental health.
Rejuvenating the local food revolution will bring a mainstream return to agricultural techniques, which are better for people and the planet. Organic agriculture and agroecology is an incredible hope for us to better feed the world over the next 30 years that is much less reliant on environmentally harmful processes. Bucky Box sees a decentralized, resilient, food secure world, and is building the operating system to make it possible, as “#foodtech” has a huge part to play in its future.
