🚀 The Abu Dhabi Investment Office plans to invest $41M across three agricultural tech companies to develop new innovations on land, at sea, and in space(!), in order to address climate-based food security challenges.

🍴 Grubhub is launching the Restaurant Winterization Grant to support independent US restaurants as we move into winter and outdoor dining, the only type currently allowed across most states, becomes a challenge in many areas of the country.

🍎 US-based functional shot company So Good So You has landed $14.5M in growth funding this week, having already seen more than 380% growth in the last 18 months as consumers become more invested in their health.

🍳San Francisco-based plant-based egg creators Zero Egg secured $5M in series A funding to grow the brand in the US and support new product launches in the next year to meet rising consumer demand.


🌱 Swedish startup VEAT raised €0.5M in a pre-seed round of funding. The firm makes vending machines which dispense plant-based grab-and-go food and drink, and it plans to launch ten of these in Stockholm before the end of the year. Read why we’re bullish on touchless tech in FoodHack+



🍻Developers of alcohol-free diet beer Joybräu collected a seven-figure sum from The Hamburg investment and development bank as well as business angels from the USA. In fact, the alcohol-free beer market is buzzing, while the traditional market has stagnated, as consumers become more mindful about their health and how it relates to alcohol intake.

💪 IWON Organics has raised $500k in a new seed funding round. Its main focus is protein-fuelled organic snacks, and it plans to launch a new product in 2021 which will take it into new territory.


🧠Private Equity firm AP Partners Fund has invested in functional gummy supplement manufacturer Top Gum, to accelerate its growth potential and R&D processes.

👴 PepsiCo is now accepting applications for its fifth annual greenhouse accelerator program, which this year will be focused on startups with food innovations and technologies that ‘improve the aging process through wellness and health management’.

🔎 The Yield Lab LatAm just announced its latest cohort, and this year’s accelerator will mostly take place virtually due to pandemic-related travel restrictions.
