Meet SunFeeds

Publicerad: 25 juli, 2022 av Elida Cimic |

What was the outcome of the support and test runs from Foodtech Innovation Network?

”When we first came to Foodtech Innovation Network we were searching for a way to produce in industrial scale, since we were still stuck in lab scale. And we got a lot of support with finding the right way from experts and seminars” says Elsa Sjödahl, co-founder SunFeeds.

Iris Bjerkén, co-founders SunFeeds, explains further ”We got help with recipe formulation, exactly what we needed to go to industrial scale. We did not want to go there with a half good recipe, that would have been a waste of time and money.”

Meet SunFeeds, a Foodtech Innovation Network member, that aims to create new nutritional energy food that could fill the existing gaps in the market and facilitate it in the right way. Today there are two different SunFeeds. SunFeeds-cream is developed to meet the needs of elderly cared for in the healthcare- system. SunFeeds RUTF is aimed for children who suffer from severe malnutrition. Both products are easily packaged in a portion sized sachet with long shelf life which makes it easy to distribute and for care-personal to serve.

Foodtech Innovation Network Conference 2022

Publicerad: 25 maj, 2022 av Elida Cimic |

On May 12 2022, Foodtech Innovation Network invited the food industry, innovation system, public sector, academy and small and medium sized enterprises to discuss and adress the importance of innovation and entrepreneurship when developing the food system. The conference resulted in several concrete discussion on new business opportunities and how to push the food system towards a more sustainable food consumption.

The main focus of the conference was to examine why some innovations succeed and others don’t, how the public sector can contribute to a sustainable future and what governs our food choices. We had the great pleasure to listen to a mix of eminent guest speakers. Starting of with Maureen McKelvey setting the context of the challenge thought her presentation ’Doing innovation together in toodtech: a knowledge-intensive entrepreneurial ecosystem perspective’ and Madeleine Linins Mörner presenting what established enterprises can learn from startups.

Maria Wolrath Söderberg continued with explaining why we do climate-damaging actions even though we know we shouldn’t and Christian Godden added how sustainable food communication works. While Monica Sihlén presented how to create a more sustainable society with the right procurement.

Concrete examples were presented by Foodtech Innovation Network members Philip Fransson from POOW the food hero, Eric Calderon from Raging Pig Co and Anders Clarensius from Edgy Veggie.

Finally, Gustaf Brandberg, summarized and presented what we will eat in 10 and 100 years from now.

Leading the way

We can see that innovative and fast moving startups are pushing the food system towards a more sustainable food consumption, creating a future which is durable for the planet. Swedish foodtech startups are leading the way with new and alternative paths for a more efficient global food system. A proof of that are all member companies that exhibited their products and presented their business ideas to the visitors during the conference.

Thanks to our member companies who shared their experience on stage: POOW the food hero, Raging Pig Co and Edgy Veggie.

Thanks to our member companies that exhibited at the conference : Gnista Spirits, Seatrients, Edgy Veggie​, Mossagården Eko, Harvest of Ecuador​, Yama Salt​, Simply No Waste, Koastal, Good Idea​, Comfoo​, Roots of Malmö​ and Yelte.​​

Thanks to our member companies that served  breakfast, fika and lunch: Maisha Deli, Arwa Foodtech, Yelte and Mossagården.

Together we create the food system of the future, today.

Centrifugal separation processes for food and protein production: principles, separators, decanters, applications and process design

Publicerad: 4 april, 2022 av Malin Komaiszko |

Course Invitation.

During the 2-days the course, the participants will obtain fundamental knowledge of separation processes – high speed separators and decanters – and applications with regards to food applications. Furthermore, the course will include pilot tests, which will provide the participants hands-on experience with both high speed separators and decanters. The lecturers of the 2-days course will be industrial specialists in the field. The course will be suitable for personal and researchers working in the field of food protein production but also Master and PhD student.

High speed separators and decanter are well established in the food industry for the separating products with a density difference. Classic applications for separators are e.g. the skimming (fat removal) of milk or clarification of wine.

This will be a unique chance to learn more about separation technology and to ask all the questions you might have to our experts. In addition, you will have the opportunity to meet other companies, academics, and students interested in this field.
