We asked our network to nominate founders, leaders and innovators in the food tech space, and wow did you guys/girls come through! We were overwhelmed by the responses, introducing us to incredible women all over the world working on everything from cell-based meats, to microalgae infused drinks, upcycled meals, functional foods, and lots more.
🤷Why: FoodTech is booming with female leaders but yet, still only 3% of agri-food tech investment dollars go to female-founded companies and we feel that's just not good enough.
As a media outlet in the foodtech space, and with a team of 7 women, 4 who are mothers, working at FoodHack - we know more can be done to highlight the incredible women all over the world working on shaping a better future of food.
💡How: By doing what we do best. Curating and creating a list of some of the top female foodtech founders, leaders, investors and shapers out there.
👀Who: You can find the full list below with 80+ names you need to know working on everything from cell-based meats to media outlets, microalgae drinks to upcycled beverages, functional foods to foodtech funding, and lots, lots more.
🤔Food for thought: Celebrating women and gender-equality only 1-day a year isn't nearly enough. We all need to work towards a future where highlighting female leaders isn't a necessity.
Note: This article is just scraping the surface of the female pioneers who are driving foodtech around the globe. If we missed anyone - email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can update the list!
