Food has been one of the fastest growing industries in recent years. Since 2015, we've seen food giants launch venture funds & incubation programs. And in the past year, there's been more than $3 billion in disclosed investments in food startups.
In this boom, we've seen many startups arise that change our relationship with food - whether they are making it easier to get meals, creating new plant-based foods, or improving the world's sustainability.
But many food startups face challenges other companies don't - they have to deal with established giants, shifting consumer tastes, new technologies, & FDA regulations & standards.
Through all these hurdles we've seen food startups make our lives better by offering easier access to organic & more sustainable foods!
