What are the key trends in FoodTech?

With the COVID19 crisis, many FoodTech trends have been accelerated. From plant-based products adoption to the rising interest for new types of delivery, the world has lived a giant experiment. Taking a step back, as we do each year, we have considered the state of most promising and impactful FoodTech trends and condensed the result in this new report.

We have mapped the most relevant FoodTech trends on two axes (see below):

  • Hype: how much hype is there on the technology or trend (i.e. how many positive press or social media mentions)
  • Time: meaningful tech trends tend to evolve around 6 phases from technology trigger (discovery), a peak of expectation (everyone is talking about it without having seen anything), disillusionment, enlightenment (when profitability and mass use seem reasonably expectable), and the plateau of productivity (when it has become common and profitable).
