Australian start-ups take a byte out of the competition

Eight Australian start-ups are among the 45 shortlisted for RaboBank's international FoodBytes! pitch program, which aims to connect start-ups with investors and mentors. Fifteen start-ups selected from this list will now vie for the winning spots in categories of foodtech, agtech and consumer packaged goods. The start-ups shortlisted to this stage of the program have overwhelmingly concentrated on areas of food and agriculture that have been touched by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Australian companies have a good history with the program; Perth-based SWAN Systems won 2020’s agtech award. This year, almost 20% of the shortlisted companies hail from down under, five of which were founded or are run by women. Tune into an event from 8 to 10 November, where you'll see the winners of 2021's program selected.

Read about the 45 shortlisted start-ups here or the FoodBytes! pitch program here. The Australian companies are Fable, Ulu Hye, Your Food Collective, Great Wrap, AgriDigital, AgUnity, ThinkBio and TranspiratiONal-SBM.
