Food Talks - October 2017

Food Talks - October 2017

The third event in the 2017 Food Talks series is: MONEY: How can we imagine money working better for our food system? and takes place on Thursday 19th October 2017 (6.30-8.45pm) at the Impact Hub King’s Cross.

Flows of financial capital dictate many of the activities in our food systems, but money does not always work for ‘good’. What might replace traditional models of financing food in the future? How can we make money work for better outcomes in our food and farming?

Key questions we will explore include:

  • What does ‘good use of money’ look like in the food system?
  • How can food & farming businesses with a social or environmental purpose raise capital to fund their growth?
  • How can we imagine money working better to accelerate the shift to a healthy, fair, sustainable food system?

Our speakers for this event are Rebecca Pritchard (Head of Business Banking at Triodos Bank, a pioneer in ethical banking) and Ben Pugh (Founder of Farmdrop, the online food delivery company who recently raised £7m in Series A funding, having previously successfully crowdfunded). 

The discussion will be chaired by Dan Crossley, Executive Director of the Food Ethics Council. Our two expert speakers will present, followed by a Q&A session, then a delicious and free buffet meal (sponsored by us and Organico). The idea of our Food Talks series is to stimulate debate and constructive thinking about the issues that surround the world of food. Please join us!
