How to feed a global population of almost 10 billion by 2050?

To cater for the demands of an increasing population, start-ups and companies around the world are developing innovative technologies to improve how we produce, distribute, and store food. The foodtech sector is incredibly dynamic and going from strength to strength. Funding for food and drink start-ups has been steadily increasing since 2012, with new investment led both by food giants and food-oriented VCs. This is why we decided to keep track of the foodtech sector in one interactive map, allowing you to search for start-ups by location or category.

The foodtech sector is wide and varied. To help you navigate through its different parts, we divided the companies into ten categories.

Consumer Apps

Apps that facilitate access to food by helping users find restaurants and recipes according to specific tastes or dietary needs, or find professional cook-at-home chefs.

Smart Appliances & Kitchen Management

Tools and devices that help restaurants manage their business more efficiently, or make kitchens smarter through IoT technology.

Food Delivery

Instant on-demand food delivery service from local restaurants.

Next-Gen Foods & Drinks

Using science and technology to create new types of foods and beverages, such as plant-based burgers that taste like meat, snacks made from crickets, or coffee powder made from mushrooms.

Direct to Consumers

Shorter food supply chains by connecting consumers to farmers, or delivering curated food boxes.

Surplus & Waste

Tackling food waste, by redistributing food surplus to and from restaurants, supermarkets and homes, or improving sustainability in food packaging.


Services and products that aim at increasing farming efficiency and sustainability, including the use of field sensors, drones, data analytics apps, or water management solutions.

Food Processing

Innovative ways to process food – for example 3D printing - or to improve the functionality of ingredients.

Food Safety

Faster and more accurate solutions to sanitise food processing equipment, assess freshness, prolong shelf life, or detect the presence of unwanted ingredients, pathogens and allergen.

Meals and Drinks On-Demand

Delivery service of meals prepared in a central kitchen, or ingredients for specific dishes to prepare at home.
