In a year that has been filled with devastating events, it’s only natural that we should look to the future for hope and purpose. The future of flavor at this point in time is exceptionally bright, with the advances of new technologies and the expansion of the flavor palette.
During his presentation, Wright discussed how toolkits can be used in the flavor industry when focusing on innovation by users as is done at the MIT Innovations Lab, which consists of academics from MIT and Harvard, together with industry, government and NGO representatives.
Wright noted, "It's so easy to just make another version of what you already have. It's very much harder and very much riskier to people's careers to come up with something that's truly different and truly original."
