The Good Food Fund has been launched in the UK which will support food and beverage brands who are targeting a reduction in childhood obesity linked to inequality. Investment fund Mission Ventures will run the accelerator programme, with venture capital firm Ascension Ventures managing the fund. The fund aims to change the landscape of healthy snacking and focus on price positioning. The fund believes that healthy food needs to be made cheaper so that low income families can also access these products. Successful applicants will receive business support and mentoring.
