    This chapter calls attention to new connections between digital technologies and food that can be found all across the world. It scrutinizes these developments against the light of an environment-development nexus engineered by mainstream development theorists, which assumes that an embrace of digital technologies in and across food systems will boost “development” and reduce the environmental impact of “modern” agricultural practices. The chapter uses materials on emerging configurations in the digital-infused food system to probe the possibilities for critical subjects to blend technical proficiencies to create alternative, conceivably more just, digital futures than those called forth by the well-established and many new firms using digital devices and services to generate and capture value across the food system.
