[4 October/Food Dive]

Nestle USA worked with three start-ups as part of the Terra Food and Agriculture Accelerator which was founded by RocketSpace and Rabobank. It first announced it would work with Terra and other collaborators in 2017 to select and coach start-ups in the food and agricultural industry. It would work with Jackson’s Honest, Miyoko’s, and Here. Nestle’s Head of Open Innovation, Ashlee Adams, said they looked forward to working with those companies to share learnings, develop new capabilities, and create something better together as they brought people more options in categories in high demand. These categories included healthy snacking and plant-based foods.
