This spring, six new companies selected by the ToasterLAB jury have joined the agri-food acceleration program launched by Vitagora and its members.
Innovations in packaging, AgTech in service of water conservation, plant-based foods, sustainable ways of consuming: the activites of the latest cohort are in line with overarching trends as well as with Vitagora's goals of taste, healthy and sustainable food.
Three new recruits began their acceleration at the end of February, the others will do so at the beginning of June. In the context of the current coronavirus crisis, the ToasterLAB team, its mentors and experts have adapted the acceleration program in content and format to take into account any additional challenges the accelerated companies may face.
NOTE: ToasterLAB has opened applications for its next intake, closing on June 22nd, 2020. Apply online here.
