In a foresight class at the Food Innovation Program, we were asked to share our source for news and signals from the Indian food system.
We thought long and hard.
Everyone in India was talking about food and seeing it through different lenses — newspapers, blogs, VC’s, scientists. It was scattered, disconnected and largely in silos.
We found ourselves poring through 200+ articles in a week to sift out “signals” that we thought would point to a particular food future (foresight thinking). We decided to put these links together in the form of a newsletter.
Edible Issues sent out its first newsletter in February 2018 with curated news, all related to food. From agriculture, policy, tech, start-ups — we looked for news that was a signal to what the future of food might look like for India.
We believe that this exchange of information across sectors of the food-scape can create spaces for collaboration and take us a step closer towards solving some of the major food related issues that haunt us every day.

Is there an Edible issue you want to share or are you solving a particular food system challenge?
