About this Session
When it comes to food, technology isn’t always the first thing that comes to mind. However, technology has changed how we produce, process, and find our food through mobile apps, data, and more. When done right, even technology can help individuals like restaurant owners and operators cultivate customer relationships, loyalty, enhance profitability, and help expand into new market segments.
As part of the new Flourishing in Food Speaker Series, this panel will discuss the positive and negative impacts of technology on the food industry with a panel including Shy Pahlevani, Founder & President of HUNGRY Marketplace, and Stuart Rock, General Manager of JOKR DC.
