Created in 2005, Vitagora is a European agrifood innovation cluster, based in the French regions of Burgundy-Franche-Comté and the Paris region, uniting a membership of agri-food businesses with public or private knowledge providers and developers of innovative solutions. It provides its 650 members with a range of tools and services helping to enrich and accelerate their agile innovation processes and to attain their development goals, including public-private partnerships within ambitious, results-driven R&D projects.
These dynamic partnerships draw on the cluster’s ecosystem of professionals – food and health businesses, public and private research, higher education establishments. These diverse members work together to develop a food product and service offer that meets consumer demand for wellness – wellness through eating pleasure, wellness through physical health, but also wellness through a link to our environment, protected by sustainable industry practices.
In 2017, Vitagora initiated its agrifood acceleration program, ToasterLAB, dedicated to supporting innovative agrifood start-ups and scale-ups, to allow great ideas to become real world business success stories. To date, more than 60 companies have been accelerated by ToasterLAB.
