Some 1,500 attendees from 50 countries came to explore the future of food, including approaches that were still taking baby steps at the time.
The next FoodTechIL was scheduled for October 2020, but due to the pandemic it ended up taking three years until the next FoodTechIL could happen. And it will reflect the progress that has been made in the meantime.
The November 7 conference in Tel Aviv will feature 70 presenting startups, 21 speakers and approximately 1,600 food industry leaders and investors from across the world.
The theme: Scale for Change.
“The world has increased the focus on climate, food security and safety and the future of food,” notes Amir Zaidman, VP Business Development at The Kitchen.
“Israeli food-tech startups have grown, raised funding and are bringing innovative products to global markets.”
Debates and discussions about alternative protein, cultured meat, scaleup strategies and a new FoodHack investors competition are on the agenda.
FoodTechIL is strategically placed during Israel’s AgriFood Week, November 6-10, so that overseas attendees can go to both conferences.
