Because there is a constant growing opportunity in the food market, numerous startups have started to come up with ideas that aim at revolutionizing the food industry as we know it. The products developed by these smaller companies are made from sustainable ingredients and they offer a much-needed alternative to what the market can supply.
One of the main reasons why these companies stand out is that they cater to the needs of today’s consumers who are more interested in purchasing food that is organic, non-GMO, and, overall healthier.
Even though many have labeled the shift in the consumers’ interest towards green, fresh foods that are made by clean labels that are transparent with their actions a fad, given its persistence, it could be argued that healthy living is now a movement in itself.
This company was founded in 2019 by two college friends interested in developing a type of cereal that is both tasty and sugar and grain-free. They now offer a wide variety of cereals that are healthy, high in protein and that come packaged in colorful packaging that will make you remember the good old days from your childhood.
SmartSweets was founded in 2016 and it is a small startup company created by Tara Bosch, an entrepreneur interested in finding an alternative to sugar-rick sweets.
SmartSweets came to be in 2015, when Tara Bosch realized that she had the means and the know-how to create plant-based sweets that featured none of the sugars that candy companies formulate their products with. All she needed as a gummy bear mold that she bought from Amazon.
Since 2019, her products can be found at Whole Foods U.S. and in Canada in over 18,000 stores. Today, SmartSweets offers a wide selection of original aromas that are both healthy and tasty.
One of the most ambitious startups that managed to create a change in the food industry is Impossible Foods. The company was founded in 2011, and it is known for creating high-quality plant-based meatless food by using a combination of soy and potato proteins.
Today, the products that they make are available in over 500 restaurants in the USA, as well as in Macau, Singapore, and Hong Kong. If you want to try their products by cooking one of the 40 plant-based recipes made available by their cooks, go on Competitiondining to stock up on supplies.
Beyond Meat is another company that has created plant-based meat, this time, by using pea protein. Their products are also available in local grocery stores, as well as in well-known restaurants. Their plant-based meat products are also in stores in European countries.
Beyond Meat is also known as the first company that offered meat substitution products that ever went public. One of its investors is Bill Gates.
LegenDairy Foods is one of the first companies that managed to produce dairy products without cows. To do this, the company is using biotechnology to successfully transform nutrients into milk proteins.
Even though the company is still in the development phase, it is estimated that it will launch its first products on the European market in 2022.
If you are looking for a daily meal delivery company that can provide you with healthy meals that get delivered to you in a matter of minutes, Daily Harvest is the solution. This company makes organic meals that are rich in all the nutrients that one needs.
The company has now over 100,00 customers nationwide and it is highly acclaimed by celebrities such as Hillary Duff, Bobby Flay, or Shaun White.
Eating high-protein snacks on a regular basis might cause you to become dairy intolerant. This is exactly what Mark Samuel went through. As a result of this experience, Samuel created IWON Organics, a company that creates plant-based protein bars that are both tasty and healthy.
The products made by IWON Organics are, as the name of the company suggests, organic, as well as non-GMO. If you are interested in these products, you can buy them from over 6,000 locations in the world.
AeroFarms is a company from New Jersey that uses aeroponic technology to grow plants in indoor vertical farming conditions. The type of farming that they use is precise when it provides the plants with the ideal conditions for them to thrive and, even more importantly, it has a minimal negative impact on the environment.
This innovative idea is a way of producing locally grown and pesticide-free vegetables that you can enjoy all year round. The products made using this technology are available through the brand Dream Greens. Another similar startup that uses vertical farming is Bowery Farming, a company from New York.
