Digital Innovation

Exploring the intersection of public health and digital food systems

It’s estimated that one-third of adults living in Australian major cities use food delivery platforms, resulting in over 68 million online food orders each year, with 20-40 year olds leading the way. This increasing trend to use online platforms to engage with, order and deliver food provides an unprecedented conduit to facilitate healthier food selection and ultimately improve the health of individuals, and populations.
