London YFood Tech Impact Award Finalist Announcement
Thursday 26th October
We’re launching the award to celebrate, support, raise the profile and give a platform to the London innovators who are fundamentally driving positive change in the food ecosystem to a global audience.
We’re thrilled that this year’s award is brought to you by Climate-KIC whose mission is to bring together, inspire and empower a dynamic community to build a zero carbon economy and climate resilient society.
Food Tech startups are tackling key city issues such as Food Waste, Reducing Carbon Footprint, Smart Food Cities, Urbanization and Food Security, all of which fundamentally impact Climate Change.
YFood have selected this year’s shortlist after working closely with the Food Tech community over the last 4 years and knowing first hand the impact the companies have been able to deliver. Our understanding of the Global Food Tech landscape gives us a unique insight into the potential these businesses have to grow and scale their impact based on potential competitors, funding and sales to date, the team and environmental/industry factors.
Based on our shortlist, Climate-KIC has selected 4 finalists and one winner, which will be announced on the last day of London Food Tech Week. We’re so excited to announce that the London YFood Tech Impact Award Finalists are…
