The agrifood startup accelerator, Gastrotope, has signed an agreement with the Government of Andhra Pradesh to create a Farm to Fork ecosystem in Visakhapatnam (Vizag).
The two partners will collaborate to provide the necessary infrastructure such as test fields for agriculture, incubation space and an acceleration programme. Based in Visakhapatnam, the programme commits to invest $10 million in 10 startups in 2018.
The programme aims to facilitate and nurture startups in the space of agritech and foodtech in Andhra Pradesh along with the other states in India. The AP Innovation Society will be coordinating and facilitating this project from the government’s side.
Gastrotope is a focussed accelerator that aims on bridging the gap between the farms and the food tech industry and envisions on catalysing new innovations in the food tech sector of the country.
