Founded in 2019, Foodsteps is a technology company that calculates, labels, and reduces the environmental impact of food. The company offers environmental calculations, carbon footprint, and environmental health labels for various food items, making it easy for food producers to measure and reduce their environmental impacts. The food industry is responsible for 26% of global greenhouse gas emissions and is a leading driver of deforestation and biodiversity loss. However, food companies lack the data and tools to achieve the pace of change required to solve this problem through informed decisions. To do this, Foodsteps validates 3.5K (and growing) food items with one of the largest food emission datasets in the world based on 50K+ farm-level data points and 40K+ post-farm processes. Foodsteps has large foodservice restaurants as primary customers. Longer term, it plans to expand its catalogue of food and the accuracy of data points and expand internationally.

Notable Achievements

  • Foodsteps has measured the carbon footprint of over 10,000 food products
  • A key food business client has seen a 15% increase in sales of their low-carbon food items since launching with Foodsteps
  • Over 100 food companies have signed up to Foodsteps since our new launch in February

Currently Operating in Nine Regions
