​Healthy Nutrition Sidetrack

Join us to provide future healthy food to our growing population by bringing innovative nutritional concepts and technologies towards the end-consumer​



The future for food presents challenges and opportunities regarding both the quality and quantity of our nutrition. Consumers seek personalised solutions for their nutritional needs that allow for customisation and transparency. The increasing awareness of the effect of our nutrition on our health is changing the way we select and consume food. It is evolving towards a healthier way of utilising new sources, such as plant-based ingredients, fibers, functional proteins, sweetening alternatives, and peptides. More people are looking for functional food that supports improving everyday diets, personal resistance levels and the immune system. Innovative solutions should help consumers live a healthier life, by reducing risks of lifestyle diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes.

Solutions we are looking for

We are looking for impactful agrifood startups that would like to contribute to shaping the future of nutrition and provide healthy, personalised food options for our growing population:

  • Novel ingredients and technologies to create or enable health sweetening (sugar) alternatives/solutions

  • Looking for plant based and alternative ingredients for healthier nutrition

  • Food genetics and biotechnologies to create new, healthy foods and proteins

  • Personalised nutrition solutions that will allow for mass consumption

  • Solutions that allow to gather and analyse consumer data, as well as solutions that directly support and influence consumer behaviour
