The Story

Sweden Foodtech was formally founded in 2016 when several long-timers within food and food tech decided to join forces and build Sweden into one of the world’s leading hubs for food tech. Our sister company is Smaka Good Food Festival, one of the world’s largest food festivals and the prime yearly event for the Nordic food scene for the past 30 years. Since its inception, the founders and co-workers of Sweden Foodtech have taken it upon themselves to lead the discussion and development of the next gen food system in Sweden and beyond.

What is FoodTech?

The current food system does not enable consumers to understand what it is they are eating, and how it affects their health and our planet. A couple of generations back we lost the connection between people and food, we moved into cities and we stopped being as engaged in food production anymore as we used to be. Moreover, the world population is exponentially growing, climate is changing and we need solutions to properly feed the next generations. That’s where foodtech comes in


Foodtech is the intersection of food and technology; the application and use of technology to improve agriculture and food production, supply chains, the distribution channels and ultimately consumption. Food innovation also involves the design and development of new products, the improvement or combination of existing food products, research into food trends and food management. These broad definitions cover a very wide field, from companies using science to improve the yields or composition of produce, to businesses working on reducing time to market and simplifying the supply chain, through to the online marketplaces, delivery services and in-house gadgets in the hands of the consumers.
