Fresh Take: These 30 Entrepreneurs May Just Change The Future Of Food

Food & Drink

It’s that time of year again: We’ve just honored the next batch of 30 Under 30 Food & Drink listmakers. What a bunch. There are dairy farmers and creators alongside restaurateurs and founders of brands of a wide array of products that just might be on your grocery shelves. There’s a better-for-you banana bread mix startup, a fast-acting, caffeinated gum, a pasta brand, and a line of probiotic trail mixes. Each of these honorees has found an early niche in the ever-changing world of food.

It’s my seventh year co-editing this list, my fifth alongside Forbes senior editor Kristin Stoller, and my first with staff writer Maria Gracia Santillana Linares. What a wild ride it’s been, and I’m excited for you to meet this year’s class.
