About the startups

The agrifood industry is actively searching for sustainable food alternatives, like plant-based dairy, land-based salmon and, oh yes, bugs! The industry is also concerned with a more sustainable use of resources, striving to minimize water usage and crop spoilage and optimizing the circularity of materials. How can corporates ensure trust, quality and fair ownership in their agrifood supply chains? And how can we keep our waters safe from blue algae? Our nine early-stage startups tackle these global challenges.

For a list of the nine startups we suggest reading “9 New Agrifood Startups Prepare To Tackle Global Challenges“.
