MAF Proudly Unveils Exciting News

December 2023

The Modern Agriculture Foundation (MAF), leading a community of women at the forefront of Israeli foodtech, is dedicated to promoting women in the field—those shaping reality and contributing to the revolutionary foodtech landscape, especially those focused on developing alternative proteins.
Once again this year, our goal is to honor inspiring and revolutionary women who are shaping the foodtech scene.
The initiative focuses on recognizing women working in various fields such as research, development, entrepreneurship, regulation, management, investments, mentoring, industry, and government.
We invite women with a vision in the field, contributing to making our plate better for people, animals, and our planet, to apply as leading figures in Israeli foodtech.
The award ceremony will take place during our annual event in March 2024, coinciding with International Women's Month. This exclusive event will feature a delicious plant-based meal, numerous networking opportunities, and inspiring Ted-style lectures.

The Modern Agriculture Foundation works to create a world where our protein sources are sustainable and compassionate. We are committed to transitioning from a food system marked by pollution and unethical practices in the animal food industry to a new, sustainable model. We foster high-impact innovation, spark entrepreneurship, and nurture a collaborative community to accelerate alternative protein solutions in Israel and across the globe. Through our programs, we help create alternative proteins that balance health, affordability, and sustainability. Since 2023, our organization has nurtured a community of leading women in Israeli foodtech.

The Leading Women in "Israeli Foodtech 2023 Awards" initiative focuses on recognizing women who work in various fields such as research, development, entrepreneurship, regulation, management, investments, mentoring, industry

and government.


We believe that these women, who have a vision for the future of Foodtech and are working towards making the world a better place, deserve to be recognized and celebrated.

In March 2023, the Award event brought together 26 top female leaders in the Foodtech industry, including CEO's, researchers, and VC's.

The event, which coincided with International Women's Day, featured a Ted-style talk on 'Building a female-friendly Foodtech ecosystem'.

Dr. Tali Feldman Sivan, Co-founder & Active Chairperson of "Meala FoodTech", delivered a presentation highlighting the high female representation in Israeli Foodtech companies, including two-and-a-half times the number of women CEO's compared to Israeli high-tech in general.
