It felt like forever when The Kitchen FoodTech Hub by Strauss sponsored FoodTechIL in September 2019, in Tel Aviv.
Some 1,500 participants from 50 countries came to explore the future of food, including approaches that were still nascent at the time.
The next FoodTechIL was scheduled for October 2020, but due to the pandemic it took three years before the next FoodTechIL could take place. And it will reflect the progress that has been made in the meantime.
The November 7 conference in Tel Aviv will bring together 70 startups, 21 speakers and approximately 1,600 food industry leaders and investors from around the world.
The theme: Scale for Change.
“The world has increased its focus on climate, food safety and security, and the future of food,” notes Amir Zaidman, vice president of business development at The Kitchen.
“Israeli food tech startups have grown, raised funds and brought innovative products to global markets.”
Debates and discussions on alternative proteins, cultured meat, scaling strategies and a new FoodHack investor competition are on the agenda.
FoodTechIL is strategically placed during Israel Food Week, November 6-10, so that overseas attendees can attend both conferences.
Some of the startups you’ll find at FoodTechIL include Better Juice, ImaginDairy, Maolac, SavorEat, CreamCol, and More Foods.
