As one of the hottest dishes on the menu in Israel, the food tech and ag tech sectors are experiencing a wave of innovation, from farm to fork, across multiple fields. This innovation encompasses the next generation of food and beverages – whether alternative proteins, novel ingredients, alternative sweeteners or edible cannabis – as well as farm productivity, production, safety, packaging, transportation and storage, distribution, consumption, consumer preferences, personalized nutrition and much more.
Often driven by the Internet of Things (IoT), big data and artificial intelligence (AI), companies operating in the sector benefit from an expert with a deep understanding of such technologies. With innovation a central pillar of the firm, Amit, Pollak, Matalon & Co. (“APM & Co.”) is your expert.
A true believer in the ability of food tech and ag tech to be a “game changer,” our multidisciplinary Food Tech Practice commands the trust of many Israeli and non-Israeli multinationals and non-profits, and technology incubators and innovation labs operating under the auspices of the Israeli Innovation Authority (IIA). These include The Kitchen Hub (by the Strauss Group), FoodNxt (by IFF-Frutarom), and Fresh Start (by Tempo, Tnuva, Finistere and OurCrowd).
In addition to representing multinationals on creating innovative plans, crafting tailored strategic agreements, completing investment transactions, as well as commercial, manufacturing and distribution agreements, we also advise many of the industry’s pioneering startups, such as Aleph Farms, Redefine Meat and InnovoPro as well as non-profits such as The Good Food Institute.
