Improved Nature – March 24, 2021


Improved Nature is honored to be included in the FoodTech 500 for a second year after winning its first spot last year on the inaugural 2020 list. Forward Fooding, the organization behind the FoodTech 500 list, selected Improved Nature from over 2,000 applicants in 60 countries by ranking companies based on business size, digital footprint, and sustainability practices.

“Finding innovative solutions to deliver sustainable, high-quality protein is at the heart of what we do,” said Rody Hawkins, PhD, President of Improved Nature. “We are excited to be part of a movement that sees the value in leveraging technology to feed the world.”

Inspired by the Fortune 500, Forward Fooding created FoodTech 500, the world’s first definitive list of the global entrepreneurial talent at the intersection between food, technology, and sustainability. It showcases selected international AgriFoodTech startup and scaleup companies that are acting as a force of good for creating a brighter future of food.

Forward Fooding said the following, “Each single company that made the list have in our opinion become entrepreneurial success stories worth keeping an eye on.”
