[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] A Taste of Innovation for the Giants of the Food and Beverage Industry [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]The biggest players of the Food & Beverage Industry are positioned to innovate internally, creating new food concepts through their own well-funded research and development. Increasingly these corporate giants are also expanding their resources outside the company to innovate externally by nurturing smaller, sometimes more cutting-edge food start-ups. One means for expanding their portfolio of products is inviting creative and successful foodpreneurs to the innovation table, and in some cases, investing in their companies. General Mills, Tyson, Whole Foods, and Kellogg, for example, all offer pitch days and accelerator programs for startups looking for funding and expertise to bring more of their innovative products to market. Industry leaders who avoid diversifying their product lines to represent growing consumer demand are destined to see their food expired and forgotten on the supermarket shelves. Let's examine some areas the Food and Beverage...
