A Village Dedicated To The Future Of Food Is Coming To Borough Market

share on:
There are several ways into the market. This one is on Stoney Street.

This week, as part of London Food Tech Week, a village dedicated to the future of food is heading to Borough Market.

London Food Tech Week is now in its third year, and each year it’s getting bigger and better. This year, for the first time, a Food Tech Village is popping up near London Bridge, giving Londoners the chance to discover (and taste) what’s going on in the industry, and what we can expect from our food in the future.

The village will have a major focus on innovative, sustainable products, and will show off some seriously cutting edge food tech companies. For example, ChicP, who recognise that 40% of British crops are rejected because of their shape of size, will be showcasing their raw vegetable hummus made entirely with ‘wonky veg’. Another company, Fresh Check, will be there to demonstrate their innovative Smart Use-By Dates that provide an easy guide to the safety of your food — if the label is blue then it’s good to eat, but if it turns orange, you should throw it away.

So head to the Food Tech Village between 2nd-4th November, and expect to discover plenty of things that have never been seen (or eaten) before in the UK.

The Food Tech Village will pop up at Borough Market between 2nd-4th November and will be free to visit.
