It’s with a great deal of excitement that I introduce the 8 companies that are part of our latest Food-X class.

With our seventh cohort, Food-X has now invested in and worked with 62 different businesses that are impacting our food chain and/or industries that touch the food chain. With our focus on agriculture technologies, B2B food technologies, and consumer packaged goods we are able to gain a level of visibility into where our food system is headed that is truly exciting.

Whether it’s reducing our reliance on meat, using deep learning to improve food production, or investing in functional foods that improve our physical and mental health, the companies currently participating in Food-X are all expecting to make a substantive impact in the industry.

Over the next 3+ months, we will leverage our amazing group of mentors and partners to help each of these companies identify their own strengths and weaknesses in order to improve their overall business and give them each the best possible opportunity to maximize their success.

I invite you to reach out and see how you can get involved in Food-X and help make our food systems more secure, more sustainable, and more prepared to support where the world is headed.
