  • Sharing knowledge to accelerate the growth of the sector.

Definition foodtech / agrifoodtech

FOOD TECH: A company that uses technologies that are considered emerging or disruptive, or that have not been applied in food or agricultural and livestock processes in the traditional way, for the creation of ingredients, additives, preparations, foods, food preparations, specialised equipment and active and intelligent packaging, as well as processes and business models, that provide substantial improvements in some field with respect to the food that was on the market and the processes that manage them, from the field and the farm to the consumption of the same.

This includes everything from the production of raw materials to the management of surpluses and the minimisation of food loss and food waste, i.e. they apply throughout the agri-food value chain and make it more efficient and sustainable, with a clear impact on the food we eat.
