One of the initiatives developed by Rabobank, that seeks to promote and facilitate food connections, is FoodBytes!, a series of transformational events in the food, agribusiness, and technology space. These events are designed to connect food industry leaders and investors with startup companies that are innovating and disrupting the food chain with groundbreaking ideas in food, agribusiness and technology. Rabobank has been investing in the food and agriculture industries for over 100 years, and new challenges are arising from increased demand for food, changing consumer preferences and the need for sustainable food production. They want to help spur the leaders and technology solutions that will help address the world’s food challenges. Through FoodBytes!, is possible to leverage experience and knowledge to connect innovators with investors, and create a platform to turn today’s new ideas and technologies into tomorrow’s solutions.
Through this iniziative Foodbytes! intend to continue working to develop this ecosystem around the four dimensions of food security and to make sure that the knowledge, networks and access to finance that will come from this will help create the technological changes that will solve the future food challenge of more food, for more people, with the same resources in a sustainable way.
