Our mission

"We support founders who want to join us in making a contribution to a sustainable world"
- Dr. Eric Veulliet, President of Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences

In 2050, there will be 9.8 billion people living on our planet. We will have to double our current food production by then in order to continue to provide everyone with food and drink. Already today, two of the world's current seven billion people have no access to nutritionally valuable food. Yet we waste 1.3 billion tons of food worldwide - every year. At the same time, we are promoting global warming through our current diet, which is responsible for 26% of greenhouse gas emissions.

We want to change that together with you!
