October Brussels' trip

Souvenir of last month when we were invited to Brussels, our beloved city, to take part in two events on the future of our food system as a response to the climate crisis we are experiencing.

On the one hand, we had the chance to express our views on how can we better empower citizens to participate in their food system and be active part of the tranformation. Maud was invited to the panel discussion about citizen-driven food system transformation for the European FoodSHIFT Policy Conference to talk about our vision and experience as innovators in this sector and the different challenges we have faced over the last 2.5 years as selected innovators in this European project.

While the day before, we shared our project and our knowledge of tempeh fermentation at Fermenthings - the Belgian hub for fermentation knowledge - in their fermentation lab, where they invite to a space of innovation and creativity to explore, experiment and learn not only about ferments, but also about a culture of sustainability and innovation in circular fermentation. We also left one of our fermenters and some tempeh necklaces over there.

What could be more delightful than stars anointing themselves in this way?
