Consumers are demanding to know more and more about the food they eat and where it comes from. Open data is answering some of these demands by allowing people and companies to track supply chains, make better agricultural decisions and healthier food choices.

Tesco has pledged to open up its supply chain data, the G8 Open Data in Agriculture Conference explored exciting new open data based apps for farmers; so what does the future hold for food and open data?

Dr Christopher Brewster (Aston Business School) and Dr Tony Hirst (Open University) will outline their current research and share their views about what the next ten years may hold in this field. Innovative SMEs will discuss the current market climate and how that might change in the future.
