Food is a vital part of life and one of our most basic needs. We love to share food but hate to leave footprints on the planet. Therefore, we believe that foodtech is a powerful way to influence sustainability and create a better future. Globally 25% of the greenhouse gas emission and 70% of the freshwater usage are connected to how we produce, distribute and consume food. What we eat also has a great impact on our health and wellbeing, with rising numbers of obesity and overweight as well as malnutrition and underweight , increasing the strain on the health care system. Food is the largest driver of exceeding the planets boundaries, and we want to change that.
