WHO ARE BUILDING

THE FUTURE OF FOOD.

Over the past several years, our society has witnessed an explosion in FoodTech innovation but simultaneously a widening in the inequity of access to these more nutritious alternatives. We support entrepreneurs building companies and technologies focused on expanding access to new, exciting food that is better for people and the planet.

 

At Rethink Food, we have a diverse team – led by Brad Jakeman and Rini Greenfield – of food industry professionals, experienced investors, tastemakers & changemakers.

Rethink Food’s mission is to help transform food systems by investing in new ideas and technologies that reduce costs, increase access to healthy food and prioritize positive environmental effects. We back our founders with a combination of smart capital and industry experience and knowledge, including from our diverse JetPack team of leading professionals and executives in the industry.

 

We are at the precipice of a tremendous opportunity. Entrepreneurs today are disrupting the nearly $12 trillion global food market1 and unlockingtremendous financial and social value.

The food industry is not the sleepy industry it once was. Emerging food companies are also technology companies. We are already beginning to see the results of this innovation in the impressive exit multiple in FoodTech. Multiples historically not seen in the food category.

WHAT WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT

 

We have seen exponential consumer demand towards better for you, better for our planet food choices. Because of the constraints of our supply chain, those foods are not accessible for everyone because of price, availability, or both.

Rethink Food is working to solve that inequitable access by investing in FoodTech companies that contribute to improved food choices and environmental outcomes.

We focus on five sectors of the food system that we believe have the opportunity to create tremendous positive impact for our communities.
