Overview

From AgTech to artisan, the pace of food industry innovation races to meet the needs of our planet’s 7 billion mouths to feed. FoodTech combines science and strategy to bring healthier and more plentiful options to our tables.

Plant-based proteins, foods grown from cell cultures, and dairy- and nut-free milk alternatives, to name a few, are all on a rapid trajectory for growth. Processing, packaging and other industrial advancements are changing traditional business models, and new technologies allow us to overcome preservation and food stabilization challenges for distribution while providing transparency into the supply chain. All of these developments can increase productivity, reduce environmental impacts, and create a healthier diet using novel ingredients and manufacturing processes. But these benefits are only possible when the underlying company is on sound financial footing

BPM’s FoodTech practice works with publicly and privately held companies at all points along the food supply chain to ensure their financial and business success. Whether assisting an innovative plant-based meat or dairy alternative producer during a capital raise, planning a family-owned food manufacturing company’s generational succession plan, or developing a comprehensive tax strategy for a multi-jurisdictional ingredient supplier, our tax, audit and advisory services bring industry insights and technical expertise to every client’s unique situation.

Scaling FoodTech to Reach a Hungry Market

Most new ventures start with a great idea and a little seed money. Growing to scale requires sophisticated financial planning to manage research and development phases and, later, capital raises to bring the product to market, ultimately scaling for broad manufacturing and distribution.  Our team brings decades of experience in the key areas needed by food industry companies sitting at the intersection of nature and science.
