Innovative Agrifoodtech Startups Abound in Latin America

Latin America is known for being one of the most biodiverse regions in the world and, therefore, the main supplier of all kinds of F&B items, such as meat, coffee, soy, and cacao.

At present, agriculture in Latin America is still often in the hands of smallholder farmers. According to J.P. Morgan Private Bank, 14 million smallholder farmers are responsible for 50% of the total food production. Most of them don’t have access to equipment and technologies that could help increase food production and access the supply chain.

For these reasons, innovators, startups, agribusinesses, and farmers are working together to improve the region’s food system through technological solutions, as reported by AFN.

Here are the six Latin American agrifoodtech startups that are revolutionizing how we produce, distribute, and consume food around the globe.


Founded in 2015 in Chile, NotCo is known for its alt-protein products like milk, ice cream, burgers and meat. Additionallly, the brand has developed Giuseppe, an AI platform for alt-protein which can identify diverse and accurate combinations that resemble the taste and textures of animal-based meats and milks.

In essence, the company has created an algorithm that can learn how to combine an infinite combination of plants to replicate animal products.


A Brazilian company founded in 2007, Solinftec´s mission is to build technology to create productive and responsible agriculture for the future of the planet.

Through its AI software ALICE, Solinftec provides growers real-time and decision-making information regarding planting, harvesting, spraying and tendering.

Founded in Brazil three years ago, Agrolend is a platform that helps small and medium-sized farmers have access to credit as easily as possible.

Through the platform, farmers can get supplies and equipment that increase their productivity and profitability in agricultural production. Agrolend aims to become the first digital bank in the Latin American agribusiness sector.

Seedz was founded in Brazil in 2017 with the mission to provide a safe online marketplace for producers, distributors, resellers, and cooperatives.
