Who will be Food Startup Partner of the year 2020?

Food startups face the great challenge of finding and keeping good partners right from the start. This begins with the search for commodities, continues with production and ends with the distribution of the finished products. At every point in the value chain there are partners who work with startups in a spirit of trust and help them to succeed.

We want to honour the best and most trustworthy ones with the STARTUP PARTNER AWARD at the Food Innovation Camp and make them more visible. The winning partners will receive a Schnack-Stop stall in the Food Camp partner exchange and a partner profile on the Food Innovation Camp site.

Until February 22nd suitable Startup Partners can apply here and will be considered by our board of trustees for the final voting.

From March on the Food Innovation Camp network can cast its vote for each category and select the Startup Partners of the year 2020.

The categories

  • Legal Partner

    Partners in this category help startups in all legal aspects: such as law firms for food law or trademark protection, other consulting services for legal issues, quality and safety services, tax consulting and partners for mergers & acquisitions.

  • Production & Packaging

    Here we are looking for trustworthy contract manufacturers and bottlers who can be recommended with a clear conscience, as well as agile and consultative packaging companies who have already worked well with startups.

  • Marketing & Distribution

    Startups also need good marketing and communication partners and good sales partners at the beginning. In this category we are looking for the best.

  • Investment

    To grow, startups often need help from investment partners: in this category we are looking for accelerators, incubators, angel investors, public funding programmes or larger investment companies for the food industry.

  • Networking Partners

    Food startup networks are the breeding ground for healthy growth. In this category we are looking for all food networks, such as free advice centres, food hubs and active supporters of the food startup world.
