Take a giant step into the world of futurology. What kinds of foods will we be eating in the future? Will meatballs still be on the menu, or will leftover salad, lab milk and insect burgers be part of our daily diet?

Starting 7 February, Spritmuseum presents “The Future of Food & Drink”, an exhibition for everyone who’s curious about what we will be eating tomorrow, how to prepare for the future of food, and why food matters to the climate.

“This exhibition is important to everyone, and that’s why we have chosen to include material for younger visitors: children and youth – the people who actually represent the future,” says Spritmuseum director Ingrid Leffler. “A fun and exciting choice.” The exhibition looks at contemporary health trends, but also takes a look back at the science fiction food visions of the 1950s, as well as having a go at predicting the foodstuffs and the world thirty years into the future.

There’s no denying that what we eat and how we produce food and beverages has an impact on the climate and our future in a way that is unparalleled in history. This exhibition raises questions about what we will find on our plates in the near future, how to ensure there’s enough food for a growing population, and whether our protein will come mostly from plants and insects.

The theme of the exhibition will also be reflected in the museum’s programmes and restaurant offerings. Spritmuseum is presenting the exhibition with support from Änglamark, Sweden’s leading sustainable products brand, and Konsumentföreningen Stockholm. Sustainability and the food we consume are central to the mission of both organisations.

Note Design Studio was given the job of creating a provocative exhibition with an optimistic view of the future. Focusing on earth tones and materials, they have constructed a poetic temporal journey through the realm of food and drink.
