This month in food...

Beyond Meat's IPO continues to soar, Nestle tries to get a bite of the market, and it's easy to see why when alternative meats is estimated to grow into a $140bn industry. vertical farming is coming direct to your supermarket , meal-replacement is still a thing, and did you know that $1.45 billion was invested into food startups in 2018?

Uber Eats might take to the skies and delivery companies continue to raise outrageous amounts to get food to your door. Farmy wins the popularity contestcannabis gets cooler, and Israel solidifies it's position as a leading foodtech hub with a pledge of $100m from outside investors (what are we doing to keep up, Switzerland?)

This month at FoodHack...

We sat down with politicians, corporates and ecosystem players to find what strides are being made for the local food startup ecosystem, here's one take on it, we brought 50 restaurant owners together early on a Monday morning for a digitalisation event in partnership with ORACLE, and in the next months we plan to expand our meetups to Sion and are recruiting FoodHack ambassadors in Bern and Basel.
