Tech in food: the transformation of an industry. Limited capacity, register your interest here.

Wamda is hosting a panel on April 29th - 6:00 PM, at Huna - One Third, an urban space for homegrown F&B talents, that will discuss how emerging technology has disrupted and altered the way food is produced, prepared and delivered to customers in Mena.

While the Middle East tends to lag behind in many sectors when compared to the rest of the world, it is arguably in the food and beverage (F&B) sector where the potential for innovation is most potent. The panel will highlight food tech trends in Mena, how tech is enabling new emerging business models, and give an overview on where the food tech sector is heading. Moderated by Wamda's Head of Media & Content, Triska Hamid - here are the startups joining the panel:

- Marwan Tarabay from The Leap Nation, a client-centric, revolutionary culinary concept.

- Mohamad Ballout from Kitopi, a kitchen network that cooks and delivers on behalf of other food brands.

- Hattem Mattar from Mattar Farm, an innovative meat farm and smokery.

Food tech innovation need not necessarily come in the form of deep or hi-tech, but rather from the regional startups’ ability to adopt and embrace new technologies. Having contributed to the shift in restaurant operation, each of the above startups will tell us more about the concept of a cloud kitchen, the impact of food delivery apps on brands and how they think social media is changing consumer tastes, habits and desires.

Join us on April 29th, at 6:00 PM. Register your interest on this link, spaces are limited and are on first come, first serve basis.
