Hailing from across Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States, startup businesses selected are creating innovative solutions that address complex global challenges, from waste management and sustainable production, to decarbonisation, to drive positive change to Australian food systems.

The AgriFutures evokeAG. Startup Program provides a premier opportunity for agrifood tech and innovation startup and scaleup businesses to directly connect with potential investors and corporates from across the world, grow their networks, and expand their customer base.

AgriFutures General Manger, Global Innovation Networks, Harriet Mellish, said when it comes to innovation and technology in the agrifood sector, Australia is on the edge of immense opportunity and this cohort reflects that.

“The businesses selected for the Startup Program demonstrate exceptional technology that will help revolutionise the sector, have strong market potential, and a clear vision for the future and growth opportunities for the business,” Ms Mellish said.

“From sustainable wine packaging, to an advanced whole-farm economic decision tool and a technology to turn rice straw waste into bio-asphalt, the innovations and opportunities they hold for the future of Australia’s food system are immense.

“The Startup Program will also connect producers with technology that will help to push their productivity to the edge; help investors and corporates find a competitive edge by partnering with some of the most exciting agrifood tech startups in the region; and highlight technologies and innovations to address some of the most pressing challenges as the world teeters on the edge of ecological, environmental and economic uncertainty” Ms Mellish added.
