The Leading Women in Israeli Foodtech 2024 Awards event: 

After months of hard work, planning, and brainstorming with some of the most amazing women in the Israeli FoodTech scene, we finally gathered for the 2024 Women Leading FoodTech Ceremony Awards last night!


It was an event that went far beyond our expectations. As the sun went down and wine filled our glasses, the Netter Center - AgriFood & Climatech was filled with the warm feeling of familiarity, community, and connection.


As we enjoyed OPA (by Chef Shirel Berger and Sharona Berger) culinary delights showcasing the wonders of plant-based food, conversations went on and on with energy and enthusiasm.


And when we delved into the networking session led by the talented Dikla Goldstein Malamud, all were eager to connect even more, share even more, and learn from one another.


As the time came for the awards ceremony, the spotlight was turned to the remarkable women who have spearheaded groundbreaking initiatives, developed creative solutions to the challenges of the war, forged new pathways in the field of FoodTech, or made significant contributions to our community.


It was truly a testament to the incredible talent and innovation women bring to the vibrant Israeli FoodTech scene.


With the last hugs and goodbyes, it marked not an end, but a new benchmark in our journey towards a more sustainable, inclusive, compassionate, and delicious world.


Congratulations to the winners:

Ziva Hamama, Ph.D. - Promoting and Developing the Ecosystem

Dr. Michal Amit - Promise of the Year

Ilanit Kabessa - Steering Through Uncharted Waters

Prof. Masha Niv - Significant Impact Over Time
