Bonjour les admirateurs de Tech Bites to our first bi-lingual show, the first part in English with a French second half. In this episode we talk with two French food tech companies about breaking into the US market, the difference between French and American points-of-view on food waste, and popular Parisian apps. Joining us in-studio: Biotraq CEO Olivier Duchesne de Lamotte and Associate Dominique Cagnon. Biotraq helps food companies optimize their cold chain and reduce waste. 25% of the food shipped globally is lost in transit. They developed an IoT platform that calculates perishable products quality in real-time using the market’s latest sensors, allowing companies to make better decisions and avoid losses.
