In this week's edition:

  • Who are the world’s biggest plastic polluters?
  • Fresh funding for the better-for-you snacks segment.
  • Some hyper-realistic plant-based eggs.
  • 13 new jobs in foodtech worth a look at.

The Digest

📈 What’s Up:  According to data from Research & Markets, the worldwide algae products industry is set to reach $6.4 billion by 2026, up from $4.7 billion in 2021 and marking a CAGR of 6.3%.

📉 What’s Down:

Funds & Funding

🇸🇪 Swedish better-for-you snack company N!CK’S raised $100M Series C funding, bringing its total raised to $160M. It plans to double its stores in the US and Europe and double down on its R&D. Check out our podcast episode with Nick, the CEO.

🐓 US alt-meat brand, Daring Foods closed $65M Series C funding, marking its third round in just 12 months and $120M raised to date, and is launching its plant-based chicken products into 3,000 Walmart stores in the US. Check out our podcast episode with Ross, the CEO.

🍞 Bread & Butter announced Fund III, which is $27M to support seed-stage startups within foodtech, healthtech and enterprise SaaS. Its invested in 47 companies since 2017, and early investments for this fund include Milk Moovement, creator of a “cloud-based ERP system for the dairy industry”.

🍫 Germany’s QOA, whose mission to disrupt the $208 billion global chocolate industry started in March this year, secured $6M seed funding to build its first pilot production facility in Munich and bring its first product to market in 2022.

🍩 UK-based healthier doughnut brand Urban Legend, just launched by former Graze CEO Anthony Fletcher, secured £3M seed funding for its junk-free junk food. The doughnuts are described as “reasonable indulgence”, as they come in at 160 calories each, and half the fat and sugar of rival products.

🚲 German startup Alpakas came out of stealth and announced a round of investment for its zero waste grocery delivery service which offers organic foods in reusable containers and climate-friendly same-day delivery.

💸 Find all 20 funding and 3 fund rounds of the week including the largest ever pre-seed round in alternative seafood and the latest foodtech unicorn, or in this case, "robocorn".

NFT's & Cake

🍰 The Urgent Co. has launched Brave Robot Climate Hero Super Cake Mix, made with Perfect Day’s animal-free milk proteins and packaged in a fully compostable bag. Here's what the end result looks like.

🇳🇱 Microalgae protein pioneer Sophie’s Bionutrients is shifting its business from Singapore to the Netherlands, arguably Europe’s alternative protein hotspot, to access its plant protein ecosystem and establish itself as a Dutch entity to manufacture its products.

🍽 Dinner DAO is a “NFT dinner club” community, designed to allow users to create in-real-life dinner clubs using non-fungible tokens. Diners can buy Dinner DAO NFT, and any cryptocurrency raised during the sale is used to purchase meals whenever the club gets together. Yes, I had to read the article twice to understand it

🔮 Love food trends? So do we! Which is why we loved this report by DigitalFoodLab, which highlights sustainable protein, automation, resilient farming, retail efficiency and personalised food as key “megatrends” shaping our food industry future.

Plant-Based News

🍳 Vegan eggs are a little way behind other proteins in terms of developments, but check out these beauties by chef Douglas McNish and these sunny side-up delights by Israel’s Yo-Egg.

🐓 Panda Express is expanding its test of plant-based Orange Chicken, developed in partnership with Beyond Meat, to a further 70 locations across ten states, having sold 1,300 pounds of Beyond the Original Orange Chicken in one day.

🍫 ‘Stranger Things’ star Noah Schnapp is launching a plant-based version of Nutella under his new brand, TBH, which supports the concept of “transparent consumption”.

🐟 Plant-based foods firm Above Foods has acquired Atlantic Natural Foods, best known for vegan canned tuna alternative brand TUNO, in a deal reported to be worth more than $30M.

🍣 Austrian food tech Revo Foods is launching its plant-based salmon alternative across supermarkets nationwide, including retail giant Bill Plus, and is now eyeing international expansion.

🌱 COP26 is taking place in Glasgow next month, and delegates will be served a local, seasonal and mainly plant-based low-carbon menu to support the objectives of the conference.

Big Food & Plastic

🥛 The Hershey Co. is partnering with The a2 Milk Company, whose milk comes from cows which only produce the A2 protein, which is easier to digest, to launch a co-branded better-for-you chocolate milk.

🚙 IBM is partnering with McDonald’s to continue development of automated drive-thru orders and acquire its proprietary McD Tech Labs, an AI-powered ordering system.

🚨 Coca-Cola and PepsiCo have been named as the world’s biggest plastic polluters for the fourth year in a row, and Unilever has climbed to third place, despite being the sponsor for the upcoming COP26. 

👩‍🌾 Benson Hill announced the opening of its new Crop Accelerator, a state-of-the-art research facility designed to support innovation within crops and ingredients, with a focus on sustainability and scalability.

Trends: Vegan Chocolate

Despite the many advances in the sector in recent years, cell-cultured foods are still in their infancy. But bioreactors and bioprocessing hold the keys to their growth and technology is improving as we speak.

Luckily, there is a small but growing collection of companies designing and producing bioreactors with cultivated meat and biobased fermentation in mind.
