Transcript

Hello, my name is Akshaj Jois and I am the founder and CEO of Jois Food Technologies, an agri-tech startup focused on creating the future of food through high volume 3D printing + software.

The problem that we are solving is that within the growing sustainable protein and plant-based meat industry, the manufacturing options are limited. Twin-screw extrusion and injection molding/casting. These simple machinery only allow a limited range of food architecture & input - plant-based patties, sausages, and beef. Items with simple design and geometry. However, when the food design complexity increases and more food ingredients are needed, there are currently 0 manufacturing options that facilitate the process, especially at scale.

That's where we come in: our solution is using breakthrough 3D printing technology to expand the matrix of sustainable food possibilities that can be achieved - plant-based turkey, pork belly, steak, lobster, fish, and the list goes on.


Jois Food Tech's vision is to catalyze the change brought by Covid-19 and transform the platform for food production, by bridging enabling software design & breakthrough customized 3D printing hardware and selling our packages to large food manufacturers, food-service, and eventually domestic consumers.

We are currently raising our seed-stage round to build our beta production prototype printers and would love to chat if you are interested in helping build the future of food and 3D printing with us.
