Community news and insights

The world’s largest and most dynamic food innovation community

We create connections right across the food system that stimulate new ideas and innovations to drive change: between startups and corporates; between food entrepreneurs and investors; between consumers and industry; between research and action; between ideas and reality; between present and future.

Our focus for impact

Supported by the EU, we invest in projects, organisations and individuals that share our goals for a healthy and sustainable food system.

Our innovation projects are delivered with a combination of industry, education and research partners to improve environmental and health outcomes by developing solutions that align with our three missions:

Healthier Lives Through Food

We will make a material difference to quality of life by enabling more consumers to have better choices through access to affordable, healthier food products and actionable information.

Net Zero Food System

We will enable the transition to a net zero food system, measuring and quantifying the change through reduced CO2 equivalent emissions.

Reducing Risk for a Fair and Resilient Food System

We’ll improve food security and safety for consumers everywhere by enabling and establishing resilient and dependable digitally enabled food supply chains.

Join the community

We connect stakeholders right across the food system to drive change through collective learning, problem solving and invention.
