“We are proud to be part of the list because we believe that our technology is a powerful tool to […] contribute to the fight against climate change”
NotCo has been recognized for using AI and cutting-edge technology to create plant-based products similar in taste and texture to animal products.
Also recommended to “watch” are other businesses developing cleaner ways of generating electricity, storing energy, manufacturing, and transporting people and goods, including BYD, Blue Frontier, General Motors, and NuScale. It is worth mentioning that Notco is the only food tech company featured on the list.

A unicorn company and B-corp, NotCo has been developing dairy and meat alternatives since 2016 to “reinvent the food industry.” The company holds 12 US patents for its proprietary AI tech, Giuseppe. This cutting-edge technology accurately discovers plant ingredients and combines them to make realistic alternatives to animal products.
In Latin America, NotCo is the fastest-growing food tech company, supplying plant-based products, including burgers, chicken, milk, cheese, and mayonnaise across Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, and Colombia to retailers and foodservice providers.
The company expanded into the US with NotMilk in 2020, and its portfolio, including NotBurger and NotChicken, enjoys a retail footprint of over 10,000 stores, such as Costco, Sprouts, Wegmans, Fresh Direct, and Amazon.
