Food Technology

Innovative food and beverage technology — foodtech — is extending its reach to nearly all aspects of food production, packaging and distribution. Rapid growth in this area is responding to increasing consumer demand for food systems that are healthier, safer, more ethical and sustainable.

Amid a quickly changing landscape and competition from both novel and conventional food sources, packaging, and services, foodtech companies often must overcome potential customers’ doubts and hesitation, mistrust, or lack of understanding before they can grow and thrive beyond a niche market. Asking customers to transition from entrenched food systems can make it difficult for emerging companies to break into the market.

Recognizing these challenges, foodtech companies need to use clear messaging that explains and illustrates the science behind their novel products without oversimplification or weighty technical language. With a menu of communication tools and strategies focused on establishing a powerful brand presence and educating stakeholders about the benefits of their products, foodtech companies can build a trustworthy reputation while maintaining flexibility and agility to handle rapid changes in the industry.
