January Newsletter: Free trial sensory testing at ISM / FlavorWiki in the News

January 24, 2018

Dear All,

Happy New Year!!  

We hope you had a great break and have come back refreshed and energized to start 2018!!  The FlavorWiki Team had a tasty holiday enjoying German, Italian and Cuban Christmas cuisines.

Flavorwiki In the News

We wanted to start the year by sharing some great press coverage.  First is the article in FoodNavigator.com by Niamh Michail: FlavorWiki Article.  Then we had a podcast interview on The Spoon: Podcast.  We also had a nice Q&A spread in the Kickstart Accelerator Startup article from:  Swiss Entrepreneur Magazine.  And then we were also featured in an article about new developments in the Food Industry written by Antonio Iannone from Cibuscons:  FOOD: STARTUPS, COMPANIES, TOPICS AND TRENDS OF 2018.  Plus another article in Foodspark.com: Article.  Look for more ongoing coverage as the year progresses and as always we are happy if you can support FlavorWiki by sharing these stories on social media.

 

Upcoming Trade Shows and Speaking Engagement in March

We are going to be attending several trade shows and conferences in the next few months.  We will be a featured speaker at the American Food Innovate Summit in Chicago on March 26-27.  This is the show where we connected with many of you last year when we shared our presentation about bringing technology innovation to the food sector.  We will share more about the topic of our presentation for this year’s summit as the date approaches.

We will also be attending the International Sweets Show (ISM) in Köln on January 28-30.  And the Future Food Tech Conference in San Francisco on March 22-23.  We look forward to connecting with many of you at these upcoming events.

December Newsletter: FlavorWiki named “Best Food Startup” of Kickstart Accelerator

December 21, 2017

Dear All,

We hope this email finds you well and that you’re preparing for a great Holiday Season!

We wanted to write a brief update and share some of the progress and developments we’ve had at FlavorWiki in the past months.  And to thank all of those people that supported us since our launch in June of this past year.

Funding and Recognition

FlavorWiki had a great Q4 for 2017!  On November 17, we completed an eleven week startup accelerator program in Zurich, Switzerland. Kickstart Accelerator is a global program sponsored by industry leaders in Switzerland.  The cohort is 70% non-Swiss startups from all over the world.  This year they had over 1,500 applications and chose only 30 start ups to participate. The final jury awards best start up in each industry vertical. FlavorWiki was named the “Best Food Startup” and granted CHF 25,000 in non-equity funding. This brings our total funding to date to CHF 40,000, all non-equity.

During the accelerator we also initiated a series of pilot projects with both Migros and Coop, the two largest private label food manufacturers and retailers in Switzerland.  Please see the press release here:  Zurich Kickstart Accelerator Press Release.

Product Developments

We are excited to have launched a new product around our taste profiling technology, focused on E-Commerce and food retailers.  Using taste perception and preference data we are helping these partners to more effectively target product promotions, boost sales and increase brand engagement.  We feel this is a natural complement to our consumer insights and new product development tools.

Let’s Stay in Touch

In 2018 we intend to spend more time getting the word out about FlavorWiki and would really appreciate your help in doing so.  Please take the time to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn to stay current on future developments.  And share our posts with your networks.  You can also follow our Blog.

Best wishes and happy holidays from FlavorWiki!
