We’re proud to have been listed in the top third of Food Forwarding’s FoodTech 500 for 2020, the world’s first definitive list of the global entrepreneurial talent at the intersection between food, technology, and sustainability. Not only is it an achievement that we have made it into the top 150 from over 2000 applicants in over 60 countries, we are particularly pleased to have been recognised as meeting the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs Sustainable Development Goal of Good Health & Wellbeing, which is to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
How the list was created
To be included on the list for initial consideration, a company must first meet three criteria:
- The core company activity fits with their definition of AgriFoodTech:
“The emergent sector exploring how technology can be leveraged to improve efficiency and sustainability in designing, producing, choosing, delivering & enjoying food”
- Be an incorporated entity with an active website
- Be less than 15 years old
From here, a unique set of algorithms determined a number of scores including business size, digital footprint, and sustainability, and it’s these scores which were aggregated to give a final score out of 300 and a ranked position in the overall list.
“We are really pleased to have made it onto the FoodTech500 list again this year. We are honoured to be recognised for the innovation we are driving with our partners and clients in the industry. We are working on a number of ambitious new initiatives to make it even easier for shoppers to meet their health and wellness goals – so watch this space!”
