What Our Alumni Say

“Future Food Tech is the number one event in the sector as far as I am concerned. It is my personal favorite not only because it provides the best possible exposure to professionals, investors and partners but also because they have the best team that puts in real effort to make the event impactful for you and your start-up.”

Co-Founder and CEO, YO EGG

“The team from Future Food-Tech were professional and fun to work with! They gave an international platform to a young start-up from South Africa that resulted in good leads and great coverage. To date it was one of the better conferences attended and the pitch platform was awesome. I am looking forward to being at the next – hopefully in person!”


“Speaking at the Future Food Tech Summit allowed Aqua Cultured Foods to showcase our fermentation based alternative seafood and increased our visibility exponentially. We have had many conversations with potential partners that I can directly tie to the opportunity that I received by participating in the summit.”


“Since our inception, we’ve exclusively chosen Future Food-Tech as the platform to launch each of our innovations, from our revolutionary animal-free muscle fibers in 2022, to our structurally precise whole-cut chicken breast in 2023, and soon our latest unveiling slated for 2024. Providing peer engagement, investor connections, and meaningful collaborations, the summit has been an essential catalyst in the Demolish Foods journey.”


“Entering the Innovation Challenge at Future Food-Tech San Francisco (and emerging victorious!) provided COMET with the opportunity to introduce our Arrabina Prebiotic Dietary Fiber to a broader global audience, while also attaining industry recognition and validation.”


“The conference was extremely helpful for our start-up to get exposure to the top corporates and investors looking for the latest innovation in the food space. We also had the opportunity to connect with industry experts that provided us great insights. If you are a food-tech start-up, Future Food-Tech is the event you need to attend.”
