Food Viz Contest

Food is an important part of everyone's lives. With data about farming outputs, nutritional values, product recalls and more, it's a topic that provides a feast of quantitative information. So, it's only fitting that the secret ingredient of our first Iron Viz feeder contest for 2016 is food data! We want you to create vizzes on food: where it comes from, how it's made, what's in it, what people like, and so on. You can use whatever data you'd like; as long as your viz is tangentially food-related, it's fair game! Whoever has the tastiest viz will clench the first spot for a free trip to Austin, TX to compete in the Iron Viz Championship at the 2016 Tableau Conference!
