“FoodBytes provided a high profile, high energy venue to put HarvestPort in front of industry professionals and investors. It is always great to be able to reach so many vested parties in one sitting. We generated several follow-up meetings with investors from the event, as well as a few very fruitful meetings with industry folks.”
