The ‘Sustainability in Food and Packaging Day’

Connecterra has been selected for the pitch competition, part of the Sustainability in Food and Packaging Day on September 5th in Renens, Switzerland. 

The event is organised by MassChallenge Switzerland, a start-up accelerator backed by companies like Nestlé, Amcor, GEA, Bühler and Migros. The event brings together top corporates and startups, providing a fantastic opportunity to showcase their brightest solutions and to discover what’s new and exciting in the industry.  

IDA: for a more sustainable farm

At the pitching competition, a panel and the attendees of the event, can judge startups, as they pitch to collaborate with one of MassChallenge’s Corporate Partners to improve “Sustainability in Food & Packaging Production & Distribution”. Connecterra has been selected for this pitching competition and we are ready to convince the jury how our artificial intelligence platform IDA can help farmers run a better and more sustainable farm. At Connecterra we work directly with farmers but we also have strong partnerships with large corporates such as dairy processors, feed companies and animal health firms to improve the food production chain and help their clients to become more sustainable and future-proof.
