At Tech.eu, we’ve been meticulously tracking all funding and M&A deals involving European, Israeli and Turkish tech companies for more than two years. While keeping track of this data is valuable, we believe that even more value can be provided by analysing all the data we currently have and the bigger trends taking place in the European tech ecosystem.
In this report, we take an in-depth look at a different and hot sector in Europe that's produced some of the largest funding rounds and M&A deals in 2015: food tech(nology). We've analysed the food tech industry in Europe, Israel and Turkey, and we looked at some of the bigger trends taking place in the space, along with a breakdown of the most notable funding and M&A deals from last year, as well as year-on-year changes across a wide variety of metrics.
Given the complexity of the food tech ecosystem, we decided to analyse the sector from a relatively broad perspective. In the report, we include not only companies in the online food ordering and delivery space, but also others in the fields of agri-tech, restaurant software, food subscription services and food e-commerce / marketplaces.
