Dutch food designer Carolien Niebling on why the future of food might not be fake meat or veganism, but sausages

The humble sausage is a 5000-year-old invention, and that is exactly the beauty of it, Dutch food designer Carolien Niebling says. After all, what better way to judge just how innovative a product is through its longevity and whether it stands the test of time? This is why Niebling has embarked on a journey to redesign the sausage to include less meat for a more sustainable future. While visiting for Auckland’s 2019 Semipermanent festival, she has a chat about the future of food, why more designers need to be influencing the food industry, and more.
