Switzerland’s TOP 3 foodtech startups 2020
Swiss Startup Award Official Selection
AgroSustain, a spin-off from the University of Lausanne and Venture Leader China 2020, has developed a natural vegetable product that fights mold. This extends the shelf life of fruit and vegetables significantly and thus minimizes food waste. For commercialization, the agrotech startup is relying on collaboration with partners in the Americas and Russia.
Yamo’s baby food with fresh ingredients and no artificial additives is popular not only in Switzerland but also in Germany and Austria. The most important sales channel is the online shop, but sales via the retail trade in Switzerland and Germany are also steadily expanding. This summer, yamo raised EUR 10.1 million to expand further.
The meat substitute “Planted Chicken” from the ETH spin-off is hardly distinguishable from the real thing. The chicken made from vegetable pea protein is already available in more than 500 Coop branches and the Coop online shop. Planted Foods was supported by Swiss Accelerator Venture Kick and raised CHF 7 million in growth capital last fall. The goal is to increase production capacity 10-fold and conquer new markets in Europe.
