Start-Ups Drive Innovation in Food

In the United States alone, small food start-up brands could account for 15% of a $464 billion sector in a decade’s time compared with 5% now, according to Bernstein Research. So what does it take to make it as a food start-up in a market where innovation is exploding? Three start-ups from various sectors of the food industry discussed this and more with Food Technology magazine’s senior digital editor Kelly Hensel in a Facebook Live chat that took place at IFT17.

The companies interviewed—Nima, Bugeater Foods, and Quigistics—are just three of eight companies that exhibited in the IFTNEXT Start-Up Alley at IFT17.
