The journey from lab to market in the foodtech industry is challenging and requires overcoming obstacles such as product development, regulatory processes, and securing funding. Science and Technology Parks play a critical role in supporting foodtech startups on this journey by providing a range of support services, resources, and programs. TÜBİTAK Marmara Technopark, established in Turkey, is one example of an STP that provides an environment for startups to develop and commercialize their technology-based products and services. Its Food Incubation Center is focused on providing support services specifically for the foodtech industry. These services include pilot processing lines, laboratory space and access to specialized equipment, mentorship and business development support, funding and investment opportunities, and specialized support for foodtech startups.
