Future Food-Tech is a key discovery platform to meet exciting early-stage food-tech companies seeking new connections, investment and collaborations among the investment and global food community.

Innovation Challenge

In the run up to this year’s summit, Kraft Heinz has set an innovation challenge for start-ups, asking for solutions that bring beans or pulses as an application or ingredient to the menu of its consumers. Three finalists will present their ideas to a Kraft Heinz senior executive, who will then come together for a short discussion and follow-up questions before a winner is crowned.

Gone in 60 Seconds

A pitch session where you get to decide the outcome! Eight start-ups have one minute to pitch their solutions to the audience. The audience then votes for four start-ups to go through to the final, taking place later on today.
