• Meet the Nine Plant-Based and Cell-Based Innovators at Future Food-Tech Summit 2021



    Nineteen innovative food-tech startups are preparing to showcase their technologies at the Future Food-Tech Summit. Among them are six plant-based and three cell-based companies, including Eighth Day Foods and BIOMILQ.

    The startups are split into six categories — Gut Health and the Microbiome, Plant-Based Alternatives, Cell-Based Proteins, Ingredient Innovation, Food Waste, and The Supply Chain.

    In the Plant-Based Alternatives category are:

    • 77 Foods — developing plant-based adipose tissue that closely resembles that in meat.
    • Eighth Day Foods — preparing sweet lupins using an accelerated traditional fermentation methodology to achieve the best taste, mouthfeel, aroma, and juiciness.
    • ProPlant Foods — developing healthy, tasty, and economical plant-based chicken.
    • Mushlabs — creating a fermentation platform that unlocks the potential of fungi.
    • Sophie’s Bionutrients — using Sustainable Urban Protein technologies to upcycle industrial food waste and grow food-grade protein with minimal space, energy, water, and time.
    • Shandi Global — adopting the latest health and food science principles to develop natural, socially responsible meat alternatives.

    In the cell-based category are:

    • Hoxton Farms — developing cultivated fat to make it possible to create highly realistic meat alternatives.
    • Tiamat Sciences — manufacturing a wide range of high-value proteins for a fraction of their current cost.
    • BIOMILQ — increasing infant feeding options for new parents by offering human milk produced outside the body.

    Previous summits have also had heavily plant-based and cell-based lineups, featuring startups such as Eclipse Foods and TurtleTree Labs.

    Due to Covid restrictions, the event will take place virtually on March 11-12. The program can be viewed on the Future Food-Tech website.
