No more ice-cream for you!
The Internet fridge is nothing new, but experts say the fridge of the future will go one step further and do the ordering for you.
An expert panel on "future food" gathered in Canberra on Tuesday forecast that technology will revolutionise the way we shop, with consumer choice and convenience to reign supreme.
Australian Food and Grocery Council head Garry Dawson said by 2030 pantries could be automatically restocked when supplies were running low.
Prepacked, convenient meals delivered straight to the door would also be in high demand in two decades time.
"I think it's going to look like whatever we want it to look like, frankly," Mr Dawson said of future food preferences at the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) conference.
"That's going to mean an explosion in consumer choice."
Coles general manager of corporate affairs Robert Hadler agreed anything was possible, saying technology would "fundamentally change" the way people will shop and what they buy.
But some experts think there could also be a corresponding shift towards healthier, organic produce, with more fruit and vegies on every plate.
With a significantly older population, one panellist predicted a boom in vitamins, organic foods and eco-produce in the average diet.
"I think there'll be a ... forever young trend," said Trysh Stone from the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry.
"I'm going to eat in a way that's going to help me live and survive."
Though that might depend on what the fridge decides to order.
