Following our DigitalFoodLab’s report on the European FoodTech, we have updated our list of the 50 most interesting European FoodTech (the 2023 list is available here).

Each year, we aim to make our process even more thorough and rigorous. First, from the huge pool of 3,500+ active FoodTech startups in Europe, we select those that have raised significant funding (depending on their categories) over the past three years and rank them using the following questions:

  • Trend: is the startup surfing on key trends identified by DigitalFoodLab?
  • Funding or profitability: Is there enough money to go to the next level?
  • Hype: Can it communicate its service or product well enough to attract interest?
  • Exit potential: can it realistically become either a unicorn (become a leader and go through an IPO) or be acquired in less than five years

Here is the mapping of the 50 startups for 2024:
