Our history

Since 2015, Foodbytes has galvanized collaboration across the value chain, from partnerships, to investments and acquisitions, to R&D and piloting. What began as a pitch competition evolved into a membership-driven program in 2021 and 2022 and has grown into a more inclusive and accessible online platform, launched in February 2023. Through our new online connections hub, we aim to exponentially scale our reach and impact.
