Welcome to Foodtech Tasmania Demo Day 2022

Celebrating Tasmanian Food Innovation Ecosystem

FoodTech Tasmania looks toward a better tomorrow by bringing together innovation and passion. Together, we strive to make an active change by reimagining and advancing the sustainable food ecosystem through accelerating outstanding startups from around the world who challenge the status quo and share our mission.

Our cohort of ten trail-blazing startups will pitch their innovative solutions contributing to a more sustainable food ecosystem. The cohort are extremely diverse, producing probiotic animal treats from eggs, making animal feed and food from CO2 and hydrogen and increasing traceability throughout the food value chain to reduce waste and ensure Australia's food exports reach their destination in prime condition.

We will be live streaming the event. Join us and our partners including the Tasmanian Government, Meat & Livestock Australia, Asahi Beverages, Treasury Wine Estate and TasFoods as we showcase these amazing companies.

This unique event will be held online, and attended digitally by VIPs from across government, investment, business, the energy industry, the press, as well as the Australian and international startup communities.
