Description

A taste of the best foodtech trends

The way we consume food has been evolving at a fast pace, from flexitarianism to sugar-free diets. California has always been one of the most advanced places when it comes to "foodtech". This ecosystem of agrifood entrepreneurs and startups innovating on all the value chain of the food industry keeps growing and attracting funding. In addition to already well-known brands like Impossible Foods, emerging startups are inventing new ingredients and products to make our meals easier to prepare, healthier, tastier, and better for the environment.

From 2016 to now, we have been observing a great number of key trends that are revolutionizing the way we consume food. Startups, investors, and now large multinationals are all willing to catch up with these trends and adapt to what the consumer wants today.

Join us as we present the key takeaways from our Foodtech Trends study, before opening the floor for pitches from up-and-coming startups. In addition to these presentations, you'll be able to taste and enjoy food from these innovative startups!
