Focused on strengthening North America’s food system in a post-Covid-19 world, Future Food-Tech New York is returning as a virtual summit in early December.
Future Food-Tech is a key platform for startup companies to generate new connections among the investment and global food community. Early stage food-tech companies have the opportunity to showcase their new and disruptive solutions during the Future Food-Tech Technology Showcase.
“There has never been a greater need for new technologies to accelerate the future of food. We are excited to unveil the standout solutions that are spearheading the next generation of food-tech innovation at the summit this December,” says Jet Luckhurst, Technology Scout at Future Food-Tech.
With a proven track-record for scouting the most exciting and freshest technologies, this year the showcase unveils twelve innovators offering unique approaches to meet the industry’s hottest challenges.
Among the emerging startups is a Vancouver startup Tait Labs and the work they are doing with upcycled agri-food waste.
Tait Labs produces sustainable food and pharma ingredients upcycled from natural sources by unlocking the health potential trapped in the 4 million tons of mandarin orange peel produced annually.
MS+ Mandarin Skin Plus® is a natural health product for improving digestion, made from an extract of mandarin skins that have been upcycled from crop leftovers of the juicing and canning industry.
“We are ready to share our vision of how it tackles the two massive problems of food waste and chronic disease,” says Andrew Tait, CEO of Tait Labs.
