If you follow Food Dive regularly, you know that we work hard to stay on top of emerging startups. Whether their funding is coming from venture capitalists or Kickstarter, we want to know what will come next in the worlds of food processing, packaging and retail. That's why we put together our first ever Food Startups directory. It's a handy, explorable listing of new companies that are doing innovative things in food.
Here's a look at what you can do with it:
1. DISCOVER NEW COMPETITORS
Explore more than 50 up-and-coming food industry startups in a directory of innovation-drivers with new approaches to traditional packaging, insect-based ingredients and much more in a variety of industry sectors. See who is doing things faster, better or cheaper than established players.
2. EXPLORE INFORMATION AND NEWS ABOUT COMPANIES AND FOUNDERS
We're constantly updating our database of founders, profiles and interviews to show you where these companies are, who created them and what they want to do. We have collected information about sizes, locations, aspirations and milestones that these startups have already hit.
3. CONTRIBUTE DETAILS AND TELL US WHO YOU THINK SHOULD BE ADDED
As we continue to grow our directory, we will always welcome input who else should be on our radar. Do you think your company belongs on here has well? Do you see a piece of information that needs to be updated? Just send us a message through the provided form, and we will be happy to see if your proposal is a good fit.
4. TAKE IT WITH YOU ON YOUR PHONE
This is the best mobile-optimized directory of food startups that you will find, and in many ways it is the first resource of its kind. It will look great on your desktop PC, but we have also designed it to be amazing on your iPhone, Android or other smartphone.
5. COME BACK AND WATCH IT GROW
You probably know that we are always talking to new startups and finding out more about what they have planned. Use our directory to find news coverage of the companies being featured, and look at it as a resource to dive deeper into the marketplace when you see one of the startups listed being profiled in a new Food Dive feature.
