CoLab Tech builds on the principles and successes of Mondelez International SnackFutures´ CoLab program, grounded in the principles of partnership and collaboration.
This year we invite DISRUPTIVE FOOD TECHS to apply for the 12-week program that includes a virtual curriculum, 1:1 mentoring, in-person workshops, and access to leadership and partners. In addition to that, participants will also receive a travel stipend.
CoLab Tech’s mission is to find and collaborate with emerging foodtechs that have disruptive solutions and the potential to scale through our core businesses in three critical areas:
- Sustainability: Our need to create a more sustainable, climate-forward supply chain and portfolio of products will focus on technologies that support regenerative agriculture, low carbon dairy ingredients and renewable/more efficient energy sources.
- Novel Ingredients: To offer consumers the right snacks at the right times as their preferences and priorities change means we are looking for technologies that can deliver cleaner labels, lower carbon footprints, sensory experiences, well-being (in particular – sugar reduction) and address the tightening of global regulatory standards.
- Process: To optimize the efficiency of our food production we will focus on technologies which can provide more manufacturing flexibility, enhance automation, and allow us to explore more modern, advanced heating and cooling options.
