(LONDON)

One of North America’s most impactful platforms targeting startups pioneering products that support the growth of sustainable food systems is coming to Europe.

We reported on the FoodBytes! ‘pitch-competition-meets-networking’ event – from global food and agribusiness bank, Rabobank, when it was held in New York and San Francisco. Now it is coming to London to offer early stage stage companies the support they need to take their game-changing products to the next level. The successful startups selected for the London stop of FoodBytes! will connect with investors, industry leaders and mentors.

 

“The opportunities coming my way as a result of participating in FoodBytes! are continuous and endless. I can’t thank Rabobank enough for the amazing support, connections, network and partners,” said Lisa Sohanpal, Founder of Nom Noms World Food and member of FoodBytes! alumni.

 

European startups are urged to get their pitch applications for FoodBytes! London in by 1 July at 11.59 GMT for the event, which takes place on 13 September at One Marylebone.

The competition is aligned with Rabobank’s Banking for Food (B4F) strategy, which forms part of its ‘Growing a Better World Together’ goal of a world which is fed sustainably by 2050.
