Foodiq, a Nordic food tech co-manufacturer, has joined Blendhub’s global Food-as-a-Service platform to collaborate with Blendhub and other platform partners in the development and production of innovative and more sustainable plant-based dairy alternatives.
The agreement stems from a joint vision around the need for accelerating collaboration with increased transparency and shared value creation along the entire food value chain, helping entrepreneurs and food companies from idea to launch of affordable sustainable nutrition based on alternative proteins and plant-based powder ingredients.
Foodiq has extensive experience in serving food producers of ready-to-consume dairy alternatives and Blendhub has a long history selling technical food ingredients solutions used by food companies in ready-to-consume food products and today extends to powder-based consumer ready products supporting food industry and impact organizations.
Both companies will share their extensive experience in the formulation of recipes containing powder-based ingredients and will leverage complementary strengths to extend their service offerings to existing and new customers worldwide.
Blendhub and Foodiq share a vision and business model focused on localization to produce closer to local raw material sources and final consumers. Foodiq operates two factories, one in Finland and another in the UK, and Blendhub operates a network of multi-localized food productions hubs covering 4 continents.
Both companies believe in the power of standardized production infrastructure and are looking for value-aligned partners and investors for expanding production infrastructure and accelerating their respective commercialization.
