About the event

In 2023, the Blue Food Innovation Summit returns to London to delve deeper into the fast-developing landscape of aquaculture and ocean health. With our food system increasingly under stress from conflict and climate change, the summit aims to put blue food, sustainable aquaculture, and restorative ocean practices at the heart of the global conversation.

Taking place on May 23-24, the summit brings together ground-breaking companies from around the globe to discuss forward-thinking approaches to aquatic food production, including sustainable aquafeed, seaweed, fish health and welfare, and digital platforms for smallholder farmers.

By showcasing disruptive technologies, and exploring case studies of innovation in action, the focus is on overcoming bottlenecks to growth and promoting greater partnership and collaboration to protect and restore the ocean ecosystem. From producers, feed suppliers and health providers to retailers, investors and innovators, the summit provides stakeholders from across the value chain with a vital platform for knowledge exchange and networking through interactive panels, breakout discussions, and quality 1-1 meetings.

EIT Food hosts the startup showcase at the Blue Food Innovation Summit

EIT Food is proud to support the event as a marketing partner and session host. Our Innovation Programme Manager at EIT Food North-West Mecredes Groba, will be hosting the startups showcase at the summit. In this session, early to mid-stage technology entrepreneurs present 7-minute snapshots of their solutions.

We are enabling 3 startups from our community to exhibit at the event. These startups are:

  • Next Tuna - aims to be the first European company based on technical inland aquaculture systems to close the reproductive cycle of Atlantic Bluefin Tuna (ABT). They will reproduce juvenile ABTs for their sale to the existing tuna production establishments. They will allow EU citizens to consume sustainably produced ABT, while contributing to the preservation of this precious and endangered species.
  • SafetyNet Technologies - makes practical Precision Fishing tools that help you fish more precisely. Precision Fishing uses specialist technology and data to make commercial fishing more predictable, profitable and sustainable. The ultimate goal is to take the uncertainty out of fishing. All of our products are designed with fishermen, for fishermen.
  • Seavolution - has developed a tissue technology that emulates the fat and muscle fibres in fish, to create sustainable, healthy, naturally cooked plant-based seafood, with the identical texture, flavour and colour of real fish, which is not 3D printed. They have developed clean labelled, gluten and soy free products that are easy to scale, affordable, and with a longer shelf life than other fish products.
