Here’s 3 food + tech ideas for you

Here’s 3 food + tech ideas for you

I love to scheme ideas.

And over the past two weeks, Sonalie of Green Queen Media and I have been hosting chats on Clubhouse where we've been brainstorming future food ideas with the audience.

Here’s 3 ideas that came up which I think could have potential:

🛒 Idea #1 - Influencer groceries:

E-Grocery’s are great - I raved about them last week, but they often fall short when it comes to product discovery and you’ll find yourself scrolling for an hour to fill up your basket.

What if there were pre-made grocery lists curated by your favorite health/fitness influencers?

You can ‘shop the look’ from curated creators on fashion site Zalando - so why can’t I do the same with my groceries? Better yet - throw in some recommended recipes and cooking advice and I’ll be looking like those buff insta-fluencers in no time 💪


🌱 Idea #2- Alt-protein service providers:

This one is a safe bet. We covered this in detail on FoodHack+, but here’s the low-down.

As the alt-protein industry grows, there will be an increase in the number of companies operating in this space and as a result, a need for more agencies specialising in this industry.

Everything from collecting consumer insights, to marketing, positioning, legal, sales... I could go on, but you get the point. More alt-protein companies = increased demand for ‘niche’ agencies, not generalists.

There’s any number of businesses that you can launch in this space. Where there’s a need, there’s an opportunity. I have some experience running an agency so shout if you're need advice on setting up one yourself.


🔎 Idea #3: Directory of vetted service providers:

I think this one needs to be built asap.

Every week I get asked by startups for recommendations of trusted co-packers, packaging partners, lawyers, manufacturers - so on. And on the other side, there’s service providers always trying to reach these companies to win their business.

What if there was a global directory specifically for service providers in the food industry that were vetted or reviewed by real customers? Kind of like the thing testing of service providers. The main features would be in the ease of search-ability and the fact that it’s peer reviewed.

I think a VC or one of the many accelerators in the foodtech space should launch this. How you monetise it - I’m not entirely sure.

By no means are these billion dollar ideas. But #2 and #3 will help solve real problems and #1 is just a little fun add on to help me save time.

Have any thoughts on these? Message me and let me know.
