The State of European Food Tech 2018


Five Seasons Ventures, in partnership with, has published a new research report on the State of European Food Tech in 2018. It will be presented tomorrow on the Future Food Tech conference in London.

Key insights:

    • €169B of combined value created by global Food Tech unicorns, of which €30B from 9 European companies versus €43B from 10 American companies. Europe produced 9 unicorns in Food Tech, in particular in the Food Delivery segment, in the past five years


    • €6.5B of venture capital have been invested in Food tech companies in Europe since 2013. The first wave of European Food Tech leaders created €21B of value. Overall, the Food Delivery subsegment received nearly half of the €6.5B, but only disrupted 1% of the food retail market


    • The 2018 venture investments in the next generation of Food Tech leaders is estimated at €1B. Contrary to the first wave, focused on food delivery, the next generation of Food Tech entrepreneurs focus on re-inventing agriculture, food production and food consumption, much bigger parts of the food value chain.
