Know About Spoonshot

Our innovation intelligence helps transform food & beverage companies from laggards to leaders

Be the trendsetter
58% of R&D spending is directed at incremental innovation, while only 14% is used for breakthrough or disruptive innovations.

While incrementalism is fuelling the revenues of companies today, they have forgotten to look at how they can create revenues for the day after tomorrow. Consumer panels and surveys are square pegs in a world increasingly made of round holes. Incremental gains are a band-aid for a bullet wound.

At Spoonshot, we believe that exploration is the catalyst for novel and successful food innovation, the very fuel to help you shape the future, to set the trend. We examine the root cause, start at the very beginning, and build from first principles. We adopt the mindset of our inner inquisitive child, always learning, never biased, always curious, never fearful. We believe that the best way to predict the future is to invent it. #bethetrendsetter

That’s ‘Spoonshot thinking’.

Built by a food & technology team
When Kishan Vasani and Sai Sreenivas Kodur started Spoonshot in late 2015, their original idea was to create a personalized food discovery app for consumers. dishq, as it was known back then, was focussed on shifting food recommendations away from ratings and reviews, to a more visual, emotional, and ultimately personalized experience.

Through that journey, the business has evolved, and today we are entirely focused on providing unintuitive intelligence for food and beverage innovation.
Our mission is to…

Predict food & beverage innovation opportunities globally with unparalleled confidence.

And long-term vision is to...

Leverage data to build food cognition.

Joining Kishan and Sai on this bold journey is a wonderful group of talented individuals, who have a deep passion for the opportunities unfolding within the food technology industry. People bring their experience from across the food spectrum, literally from farm to fork, including companies like Mondelez, Diageo, McDonald’s, Mintel, Euromonitor, Just Eat, and Zomato to name a few.
