It’s an interesting. What defines “FoodTech”? It’s not something that’s really been established.
The obvious understanding is that it represents the intersection of Food and Technology. It’s meant to capture the way in which the global food and agriculture system is poised for disruption by the adoption of modern technology. This can cover the entire spectrum from the farm to the fork.
AgFunderNews recently put out an article titled “What is AgriFood Tech?” We think it is one of the best overviews of the emerging FoodTech segment of our global economy. A link to this article has been provided below.
We hope this provides a foundation for defining “FoodTech” and spurs some ideas for our upcoming Startup Weekend Food+Tech!
