Spain Foodtech Partners: Alianza Team

Alianza Team® is a Colombian company with expertise in lipids and fats and a leader in the food sector. With operational presence in Colombia, Chile and Mexico, the company develops high-tech food solutions.

In 2019, it launches its venture capital albora® with the purpose of accelerating knowledge capture and enabling the organization to generate greater value for its business units and stakeholders, through collaboration with startups and research centers.


In 2020, Alianza Team® first began collaborating together with Eatable Adventures, on open innovation projects such as the first “Hack the Food System” scouting, which was centered on finding the most disruptive startups in the lipid ecosystem.

Since then, the company has continued its commitment to drive open innovation with Scouting and Challenge projects to efficiently and quickly solve industry challenges.

In 2022, the challenges evolve to the more sophisticated side of innovation with the first Open Innovation Portal, a platform that brings together all startup initiatives for industry challenges.

Our bet with the Open Innovation Portal is to promote an innovative ecosystem that leverages the growth of all the actors that are part of it”.
