THE JURY

SANDRA PREISS - ENTREPRENEUR IN THE FIELD OF NEUROCOMMUNICATION

"I am delighted to be a juror and sponsor at FOOD & LIFE in Munich this year. For me, this trade fair is the perfect mix of innovation and flavour - a stage where start-ups bring their fresh ideas to the world. This trade fair is not only a showcase for new products and trends, but also a meeting place for the exchange of knowledge and experience, which is essential for young companies. As an experienced entrepreneur in the field of neurocommunication and a committed promoter of innovative ideas, I am also delighted to sponsor a unique special prize for start-ups: a free brain scan for the brand of the winning start-ups. See you in Munich - I'm looking forward to it."

SELDA MORINA - INNOVATIONSMANAGEMENT, START-UP LOUNGE REWE SÜD

"For me personally, it is always exciting as a jury member to meet new and innovative start-ups at the live pitch. The personal pitch is a special experience - very different from "just" receiving an email with the pitch deck. As Germany's second-largest food retailer, it is important to us to support innovation and create a space for start-ups. That's why we support REWE Süd with the Start-up Lounge. FOOD & LIFE is the perfect platform for us to scout innovative start-ups and get in touch with them."

LAURA PETRUCH FROM egoFM

"We are delighted to be a juror and sponsor of FOOD & LIFE in Munich again this year. It has always been important to us to offer innovative start-ups a stage. This trade fair is not only a showcase for new products and trends, but also a meeting place for the exchange of knowledge and experience, which is essential for young companies. With the prize of the media package at egoFM, we want to do our part to help new entrepreneurs become better known. See you at FOOD & LIFE!"

CHRISTINE PURNELL - START-UP-COACH, StartinFOOD

"Start-ups bring new trends to the table and enrich our range. But it's not that easy to launch a new food product on the market. This is where the FOOD & LIFE trade fair offers start-ups a great stage: founders can reach many interested people and publicise their products."

NIKOLA NIKOLIC - START-UP ADVISOR AT STADTSPARKASSE MUNICH

"Start-ups drive our economy and their creativity and agility are an absolute asset to the change process in Germany. Networking and building a network is very important for a start-up. To find key partners, we recommend the FOOD & LIFE trade fair, for example. This is where experience meets new trends and makes it much easier to get started and establish yourself."

REGINA HEMME - EDITOR AND DELICATESSEN EXPERT AT LUST AUF GENUSS

"As a delicatessen expert at Lust auf Genuss, I always taste a lot of (new) products. It's not just the flavour and appearance that have to impress - I'm also always interested in the stories behind a product. That's why I think it's important to give small brands and manufacturers in particular a stage - like here at FOOD & LIFE - and to give them the necessary reach by publishing them in our magazine - so that as many people as possible find out about these special delicacies."

FRANZ LERMER, advertaste

"We are incredibly pleased to be able to sponsor a start-up award. FOOD & LIFE is always exciting for us to discover new trends and products. It's a great opportunity to have interesting conversations, make new contacts and meet customers. We are convinced that every food start-up can benefit from unique photos and videos to market their products. We are therefore all the more pleased to be able to produce a high-quality and irresistible product video with a start-up."
