Who, What, Why?

The Food Rush publishes weekly content and a quarterly digital magazine for passionate foodies who care about the future of food.

We report on the intersection of food, technology, innovation and sustainability to raise awareness and spark conversations about these fascinating and hugely important topics.

We believe that technology and innovation has the potential to revolutionise the food system and by building community we can make a large positive impact from a number of small actions.

Our Mission

We’re on a mission to raise awareness of the global issues of food sustainability, food waste and inefficiencies in the food ecosystem and enable everyday people to live more future friendly lives. Along the way we aim to showcase and celebrate startups, entrepreneurs, apps, gadgets and all sorts of innovative food solutions to the wider public.

By bringing together and giving a voice to passionate, future thinking people we have the potential to spark conversations and solutions to the global food issues we face now and in the future.

We’re not activists (and you don’t have to be one either) but we believe it is possible to change our methods of food production, consumption and waste for the better. What we celebrate and showcase is an exciting alternative that will affect that change.

What’s in it for me?

We’re building a community of curious, passionate, future thinking foodies. The Food Rush and Future of Food Magazine are for you if:

  • You love food
  • You enjoy learning new things
  • You have an inquisitive mind
  • You care about doing the right thing
  • You want to see or make change happen
  • You care about what you eat and where it comes from
  • You care about the future
  • You value quality

Whether your a passionate home cook, love eating out, work in the food business or would like to, you’ve found the right place.

Everybody has to eat

Our food ecosystem touches everyone: everybody has to eat.

The global issues will affect us all in some way – both now, in five years, in 20 years and further into the future. Through education, inspiration and taking action we hope to see positive change. Care to join us?
