Here’s another placement we secured for this past February's FoodBytes Summit, via our work with SF New Tech earlier this year. Inc’s Jenna Broughton attended FoodBytes and this particular story focuses on the new food startups entering the carbonated soft drink market. Here’s an excerpt:
As big soda grapples with negative press and how to evolve in the new consumer climate, it has created an opportunity for startups to enter the market. In the last several months, beverage makers looking to take on the incumbents have been making a splash at competitions across the San Francisco Bay Area.
Earlier this year, Patrick's Fine Sodas, a company in Santa Fe, N.M. that specializes in probiotic drinks, was the winner of the FoodBytes! Summit, an event that aims to connect investors and companies in the food industry. Last month, the all-natural energy drink, Mati, from Durham, N.C., beat out 11 tech companies to win top honors at Google for Entrepreneurs Demo Day.
