Following their bestselling intro to 3D Printing–“3D Printing: The Rise of the Third Industrial Revolution”–Council & Petch turn their attention to food. Whereas the previous title served as a primer on the impact of 3D Printing in diverse industries including medicine, space travel, fashion and construction, 3D Printing: The Future of Food tackles only one subject and in substantially more depth.
The authors delve into the complex nature of the food industry and its influence in our home, work and social lives. The book examines how the spread of 3D printing technology may help address urgent issues related to sourcing, how we process and consume food, imminent issues facing food supply and the integral role 3D printing will play.
3D Printing: The Future of Food includes extensive interviews with experts in the 3D Printing industry and beyond. The book draws upon academic research to illustrate subjects such as the creation of 3D printed meat, food security and sustainability, GMO, and the forthcoming 3DP devices entering professional and domestic kitchens.
A change to the fundamental nature of our food supplies is a concept many are uncomfortable with. This book investigates which changes are likely to take place, when this will happen and why change might be inevitable if sufficient food is to be available for the increasing global population. The Future of Food is an unparalleled study of this area that brings together scientists, industry practitioners, academics and thought leaders in a way no other title on the market currently does.
