McWin Food Tech Fund

An $8.8 trillion global food industry is on the cusp of monumental transformation

McWin team is raising a dedicated Food Tech Fund following the success story of the McWin Food Ecosystem Fund which has to date invested in some of the most exciting companies in the food tech space.

The food system is broken and McWin is a part of building a more sustainable model.

Food and Climate Crisis

The world is headed towards challenges with regard to availability of food and climate impact. The current food system is broken and won’t be able to support projected population growth, nor will we be able to meet climate change targets through it.

~80% more crops needed by 2050 food demand

~30% of greenhouse gases are related to food

9.7 billion humans by 2050

77% of agricultural land used by animal agriculture, despite supplying only 17% of food

2x CO2 emissions from food industry compared to transportation

1.6 Earths needed by 2050 to sustain current consumption
