Food Tech Matters: Defining The Future Of Sustainable Food

Technology is proving to be a game-changer in defining the future of sustainable food, and the fast-paced food tech scene has certainly gained the attention of business-savvy investors.

Food Tech Matters, the innovation meet-up in London scheduled to be held later this month, offers an unmissable opportunity for the world’s best food tech entrepreneurs to meet and secure business with global food leaders and an impressive line-up of investors looking for the newest, most innovative technologies set to change the future of food.

Taking place on 25 and 26 June, the two-day meet-up has attracted some of the biggest names in the industry, keen to get a slice of the pie in such a thriving industry.

The companies attending the event include Costa Coffee, Microsoft, Nestlé, Five Seasons Ventures, Danone, Eatable Adventures, Draper Esprit, BiTHOUSE GROUP, Seedrs, Anterra Capital, Sainsbury’s, Future Food Network, PepsiCo, Unilever, Barclays, Cape Capital, Doehler Ventures, ETF Partner, Octopus Ventures, HSBC, Ferrero, Virgin Management, Piper PE LLP, and Bowman Ingredients.

Start-ups that are looking for investment to scale up their solutions and bring them to the mass market can apply to pitch their solutions during three separate, unique pitching sessions.

The deadline to apply for the pitching sessions is 7 June.

The University of Cambridge IfM Open Innovation Forum seeks to find the best innovation and tech innovators.

Start-ups and SMEs can apply to pitch their businesses to some of the world’s largest food, drink and FMCG companies, including Cargill, Heineken, PepsiCo, and Mars.
