The game is currently being developed by Homo Ludens, an independent game studio based in Paris and incubated by LINCC-Paris&Co.
Smart Food Paris, the Paris&Co innovation platform dedicated to food issues, revealed the 18 names of its 6th promotion winners.
Smart Food Paris, a true hub of experimentation dedicated to the challenges of tomorrow's food, selected 18 startups, from among 85 applications received and studied, whose innovations show a real capacity to support various aspects of the sector’s sustainable transformation: product innovations, disposable food packaging alternatives, distribution and catering digitalization, and last-mile delivery.
"The new class of startups reflects what young companies can bring to the agri-food industry: a wide variety of innovations very much in line with the sector's strategic challenges. However, this diversity is not always reflected in the profiles of the winning startups' management teams, with women still being under-represented. That is why this new class will have not one but two mentors, Johanna Le Pape and Anne Cazor, two women whose careers combine gastronomy and entrepreneurship." Domitille Dezobry, Head of Smart Food Paris.
