Farmed algae omega-3, ‘wonky veg’ hummus and organic face masks made of unwanted hemp husks. These are just some of the exciting and innovative sustainable products available to try at Borough Market during this year’s London Food Tech Week. 😋

UK’s first Food Tech Village pop-up at the Market Hall showcasing some of the world’s most cutting-edge Food Tech companies.

You will get the chance to taste innovative food and drink and experience the technology of the future for themselves, some of which has never been seen – or eaten – before in this country.

Including:
Simris Alg, The world cannot cope with current levels of mass production in terms of animal products. Based in Sweden, Simris Alg is developing a pioneering solution to this issue: the production of omega-3 from farmed algae as a premium alternative to fish oil.

ChicP, Recognising that 40% of British crops are rejected because of their shape or size, ChicP is a raw vegetable hummus company that is dedicated to producing delicious dips using so-called ‘wonky veg’.

Its products include; Fresh Check Spray, an easy solution for detecting dangerous contaminants like bacteria and bleach, and Smart Use-By Date, which provides an easy on-the-spot guide to the safety of your food. If the label is blue you are good to go but if it is orange you know youcan throw the food away.
