Your Selected Place: what’s the name of the Place you’re developing a Vision for?

The Pearl River Delta, a geographical term, is located in the central and southern part of Guangdong province

What country is your selected Place located in?


Describe your relationship to the place you’ve selected.

I am a native of guangdong, living in guangzhou, the most prosperous city in the pearl river delta.I have a good understanding of the economy and pace of life in this city.At the same time, I love the unique food culture here.The food culture here is the civilization of the whole country. I hope that in the future, I can bring the food culture here to further parts of the world

Describe the People and Place: Provide information that would be helpful for an outsider who has never been there and may have no context about this Place to better understand the area.

In the pearl river delta region of guangdong province, the economy is booming and people are living at a fast pace.But the demand for food quality is very high.People here have strict control over how food is prepared.Ingredients, cooking methods, try to preserve the nutritional value of the food.The pearl river delta is located at the junction of tropical and subtropical zones, with a monsoon climate and a rain-heat delta. The terrain is flat and suitable for the development of planting.In this changeable climate, people's physical conditions will also change greatly in a short time, so people prefer to adjust their physical conditions with food.Different soups are used to recuperate their bodies in different seasons.It can be seen that people's demand for food nutrition is strong.

What is the estimated population (current 2020) in your Place?


Challenges: Describe the current (2020) and the future (2050) challenges that your food system faces.

The pearl river delta is an economically strategic region. People are busy with work and do not have enough time to manage their diet.However, the unique diet culture and diet therapy culture make people have a higher demand for the nutritional value of diet.People want every meal to be nutritious, but the food industry in China is plagued by problems and food safety cannot be guaranteed.The main reason behind this is that China's current population is so large that some poor food processing methods are still used to provide food quickly to ensure that the supply is not less than the demand. The other reason is the low level of industry regulation.

Address the Challenges: Describe how your Vision will address the challenges described in the previous question.

We have made a new system design for the self-provided lunch for the future office workers, which has overturned the existing way of eating lunch.Take nutrition management as the core for lunch customization.Food is printed from the elements, and leftovers are recycled from the elements.Food choiceness, high nutritional value, suitable for busy office workers in a short time to absorb enough nutrition.Analyzing people's behaviors in life, obtaining body data, and elaborately customizing nutrition management.At the same time, it also solves the problems of low quality of the existing self-provided lunch materials, loss of the nutritional value of heating lunch and waste of leftover food.

High Level Vision: With these challenges addressed, now provide a high level description of how the Place and the lives of its People will be different than they are now.

Under our brand new brown lunch nutrition management system.Office workers will take advantage of their lunch break to manage nutrition in a short period of time.3D printing also eliminates the need for a daily lunch break, or the need for long meals, stale food, or wasted food.

Full Vision: How do you describe your Vision for a regenerative and nourishing food future for your Place and People for 2050?

We're building a food system that's centered around smart terminals,and a nutrition manufacturing machine and a lunch box that allows food to grow.InsideIntelligent terminals are used to detect various data.Nutrition-making machines are used to make food.Food is grown in the lunchbox to ensure the user is eating at their bestBased on our analysis, we believe that the food trend in the future will take elements as the basic unit of composition. We no longer need a single food, but extract food containing elements of nutritional value and finally get daily customized food through printing technology.he smart terminal can obtain real-time body data detected by the smart home system and smart portable device, and basic body data from the medical platform.At the same time, medical assistants monitor physical conditions and provide medical advice.Next,the intelligent terminal collects, summarizes and analyzes the data, and makes the daily lunch plan according to the nutritional content and types required by the human body. the nutrition manufacturing machine receives the nutrition plan, selects the relevant elements and prints out the food prototype.Exquisite food form, concentrate the nutritional value of the day.The prototype food is grown into a finished product in a lunch box, ensuring that the user eats at the optimal time. During meals, socialize across distances using the projection of the lunch box.At the same time, you can break the food apart and share it with others.Then,put the lunch box into a nutrition-making machine, which recycles the elements that break down the rest of the food.The machine detects the user's mood and makes snacks in advance to create intimate personalized experience.That's the main progress of our system.We believe that under this system, people can have the most considerate and efficient diet nutrition management, surplus food can be recycled, and build a sustainable and environmental protection system
