Investment in FoodTech September 2016

This September we have detected several companies that have made rounds. Some of them like FreshDirect, for a very high amount, $189M. The secret of this company's success is that it is not simply an online supermarket, but offers high quality products at lower prices.

In addition, we have also detected several purchases, such as the one made by a Chinese company, Brifgt Food, which has bought the 50% from a meat export platform in New Zealand, for a price of 191M.
