Made in Brooklyn: A Craft Foods Revolution

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Commonly clichéd as hipster-made jams and kombucha—the Brooklyn Maker Movement has ignited a global appetite for artisanal products, forcing long-standing CPG manufacturers to rethink their production and innovation practices. Rooted in authenticity, community, seasonality, and sustainability — it begs the question: what does the future hold for this phenomenon and how will it affect our larger food ecosystem?
Join key leaders of the Brooklyn Maker Movement as they discuss their learnings, setbacks, and future aspirations. Panelists will include pioneers of the DIY food scene who are case studies of how to successfully scale an artisanal passion into a viable business as well as a James Beard award-winning journalist and Editor of Edible Brooklyn. This session will both inspire both aspiring food makers and passionate food lovers, and prove that the Maker Movement isn't a fleeting trend, but a lasting paradigm shift.
