The driving forces that are shifting the interest in food tech include climate change, digitalization opportunities, as well as health-focused consumers. Improved technologies focused on animal product substitutes continue to grow and get new investments. And as prices decrease, these products will gain more popularity among users. Foodservice robots are making their way into many e-restaurants. These robots bring together the convenience of ordering online, personalization of meals, access to healthy and nutritious elements, and the speed of getting food to a table.
While some companies focus on the food itself, many others are exploring how to process, package, and distribute this new wave of sustainable, healthy, and innovative food. Further, food preservation companies are also leading the way in reducing food waste while improving product quality during transportation. Changing consumer preferences of quality, convenience, and gourmet products in foodservice have led to a rise in the category of fast-casual restaurants and placed pressure on fast food restaurants to rethink their delivery models. Innovators in this segment are focused on traceability, sustainability, improving freshness and eliminating food waste.
