57 featured start-ups trailblazing their way in the field of food-tech will present solutions at Future Food-Tech on 28-29 September, with many more set to attend as delegates.


The summit will welcome 800 leaders from food brands, ingredient providers, pioneering entrepreneurs and investors, to address the challenges in creating foods that are nutritious, accessible, climate-smart and accelerate high-profile networking.


Callum Alexander-Lindsay, start-up partnerships manager across the Future Food-Tech series, commented: “At a challenging time for investment, it’s great to see so many pioneering companies in one place, ready to showcase their dynamic technologies. With so many investors also set to attend, I can’t wait to see what game-changing deals and partnerships are made at the summit.”
