On an ancient journey to rebuild our food system for the future
"Science can equip us, but we need wisdom & visions to guide us"
We need to build our future food system based on ancient wisdom
At Cena, we are convinced that the answer to rebuilding our food systems lies in the combining disruptive high-tech innovation with the wisdom from ancient cultures' relation to food.
"Science can equip us, but we need wisdom & visions to guide us."
We must serve future generations by a menu of disruptive innovations
At Cena work to do more than bring new food products to the market. We work with innovations that are tailored to the needs of humans today & tomorrow. At best, food should contribute to personal wellbeing, bring people together across communities, and secure the foundation of national security.
We need global scaling with local adaptations
Many foodtech companies are scaling by exporting products and some are even reinventing the wheel by working on innovations that exist elsewhere. At Cena, we advocate scaling innovation with efficient business models such as B2B & third party licensing. In order to do so, we leverage our extensive network across the globe.
