Startup activity and investments in the French FoodTech

French FoodTech startups have seen an increase in investments in 2018 (€227M, from €136M in 2017) while the number of deals is decreasing (66 in 2018, from 94 in 2017). After a kick off in 2015, the French FoodTech ecosystem is entering in a phase of maturity. Indeed, more money is poured into advanced startups with the growth of series A and series B (and beyond) deals.

The €227M invested in French FoodTech startups in 2018 could be enough to put France as the leader in the European market even if its share in global investments is only 2.6%. Paris is becoming the place to be for European FoodTech startups.
