Joining us on the main stage for a keynote from Marc Coloma – food activist, co-founder and CEO of Heura Foods! As the co-founder of one of Europe’s most exciting foodtech startups of today, Marc will talk about how his team is disrupting an industry on a global scale and bringing about a food revolution.
Based in Barcelona, Heura Foods is on a mission to accelerate the protein transition and make plant-based the norm with a global community of ‘good rebels’. Founded in 2017, the startup recently smashed its crowdfunding campaign, hitting its initial goal in just 30 minutes. Reflecting Mediterranean culinary heritage, Heura’s products are created using extra virgin olive oil and with a priority for ingredients that are high in nutrition and flavour. Currently, Heura is available in more than 13k points of sale across 20 countries, including Spain, Portugal, France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, Poland, Switzerland, Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Egypt, Canada, Mexico and more.
Marc Coloma has been involved in animal activism since his teen years and founded Heura Foods to bring tasty plant-based protein options to the market. With a background in social impact, activism, emotional intelligence and leadership, Marc is building Heura Foods to be more than just a brand, but a lifestyle backed by a global community.
Heura is certainly shaking up the food industry with its innovative approach to foodtech and impact-driven business and we can’t wait to hear more from Marc at the Summit! Want to join us? Pick up your ticket today!
