1. High Level Insights
Welcoming speakers on-stage is long overdue! Visionary leaders will take to the main stage in March for impactful discussions and debate.
“Future Food-Tech is an important industry forum that often yields relevant insights aligned with our mission. At Califia Farms, our mission is to create a future where plants replace dairy without compromise. This means developing plant-based dairy alternatives that offer a “no compromise” sensory and nutrition experience for consumers,” Paul Neumann, EVP, Research & Development, Califia Farms
“Dialogue like the one planned for Future Food-Tech comes at a critical moment for collaboration to secure our food system and planet for our children. We’ve shared the significant potential our protein has to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and are eager to use this event to further our work on making that positive impact a reality through partnerships with the leaders there,” Tim Geistlinger, Chief Scientific Officer, Perfect Day
2. Make New Connections
At Future Food-Tech you’ll meet hundreds of senior food-tech decision makers who, like you, are ready to connect and collaborate. In San Francisco we’ll make it easy for you to forge vital new connections face to face or online.
“Working collaboratively is increasingly critical in our continually evolving ecosystem of food science and technology. Here at Mondelēz we continue to look for creative partners to work with to help us deliver on our sustainability and wellbeing objectives while continuing to deliver our brand promises to consumers around the world. We look forward to the connections made through Future Food-Tech to help us solve challenges in areas such as sugar and calorie reduction, and recyclable packaging,” Ian Noble, Sr. Director, Mondelēz RDQ
3. Unlock Game-Changing Partnerships
Countless food-tech business leaders have formed partnerships following conversations initiated at Future Food-Tech. Could your next collaboration kickstart from attending Future Food-Tech?
“At Umiami, we’ve cracked the code of plant-based whole-muscle products. 2022 is about scaling our unique alternative to extrusion and having a global impact. We’re currently partnering with strong brands worldwide; Each one will get to be the first company to sell plant-based whole-cuts in its geography. Thus, 2022 is also about creating strong partnerships. Future Food-Tech is key in creating these collaborations,” Martin Habfast, Co-Founder, Umiami
“The strain on our global food supply continues as environmental, economic and social pressures intensify. This challenge is bigger than any single solution. The technology innovation required calls for greater collaboration to ensure – not only resiliency – but also transparency across the entire food system. Future Food-Tech creates the space for expanded partnerships to form and momentum to build,” Aaron Hutchinson, President and Co-Founder, CropTrak
4. Unrivalled Networking
We know you’ve missed catching up with food-industry leaders and colleagues. Over the coming weeks, we’ll reveal the opportunities at the summit to meet and mix with familiar faces and the rising stars of food-tech.
“A single cell can make a world of difference. At Roslin Tech, we use pluripotent stem cells as catalysts to make cultivated meat viable and accelerate the transition to a more sustainable food system. We look forward to being inspired by and interacting with other food innovators at Future Food-Tech,” Ernst van Orsouw, CEO, Roslin Technologies
5. Get the Knowhow to Delight your Consumers
Benchmark your strategy and leave with valuable insights to accelerate your business goals and ultimately delight your consumers.
“Conversations cultivated at Future Food-Tech will enable us to go beyond consumers’ expectations for the food they eat. We look forward to inspiring innovative new uses for over 14 versatile almond forms— from defatted almond flour to almond milk and more— by highlighting California almonds’ healthy halo and ability to enable endless texture and flavor combinations in products like chewy bars, crunchy snack clusters, refreshing beverages, and plant-based dips,” Harbinder Maan, Associate Director, Trade Marketing and Stewardship, Almond Board of California
6. Expand Your Start-Up Discovery
Agile start-ups are redefining the food-tech industry and presenting new solutions ripe for adoption and investment. With live cooking demonstrations, exclusive tasting sessions and 60 second start-up pitches you’ll meet the Founders and CEOs at the summit.
“At Future Food-Tech we can’t wait to showcase ambitious start-ups on the global stage. The Step Up to the Plate sessions will see MeliBio, Umiami, Sundial Foods, Meati Foods prepare their ingredients live for panelists to taste. We are sure the live tastings and diverse menus showcasing novel foods will be summit highlights this March,” Jet Luckhurst, Start-Up Partnerships Manager, Future Food-Tech
“Bringing to the forefront technologies that can improve human and planetary health, without compromising on the customer’s experience, is what drives us at IndieBio and SOSV. Most people are just trying to get by in their day-to-day — I don’t want to shame them into making the ‘right’, sustainable choices. We need next-generation food science that emphasizes clean ingredients to get the taste, mouthfeel, and nutrient profile that makes a joy-seeking eater say ‘Gimme another bite’, Pae Wu, CTO, IndieBio, Partner, SOSV
7. Overcome Shared Challenges

We are excited to be involved with the upcoming Future Food Tech Summit, to address such food and nutrition-related challenges through a world-leading forum,” Anthony Finbow, CEO, Eagle Genomics
8. Understand the Regulation
As we bring together food brands, innovators, ingredient companies, investors, chefs and regulatory professionals, we hope to support industry challenges regarding regulatory approval for novel foods.
“Future Food-Tech presents the opportunity to discuss with industry leaders the classic case of laws and regulations trying to play ‘catch-up’ with technology that has arrived, disrupted, and continually innovates in a thriving market. We’re helping clients navigate the existing regulations, advocate for changes or interpretations that enable advancements, and monitor developments and trends to prepare them for what’s coming next,” Sonia Nath, Partner, Cooley
9. Market Intelligence
By harnessing market intelligence and sharing experiences we can create a more resilient and sustainable food system. Discover the latest trends and forecasts at the summit to stay ahead in 2022.
“The food industry faces multiple macro challenges that require a systemic change from farm to fork. The difficult decisions ahead to bring about this transformation require rich and nuanced data and insight, that in turn breed new levels of confidence. As Future Food Tech’s intelligence partner, Spoonshot is committed to delivering the key insights that will guide this community through this journey to build a more sustainable ecosystem,” Kishan Vasani, Co-Founder and CEO, Spoonshot
