Informed College Students Demand Healthy Options: MedCap taps into the college health-food movement
MedCap Advisors offers strategic guidance for clients with emerging technologies and ground breaking developments, and we have recently taken our strategic fortitude and applied it to the food industry. Two of our interns from Roger Williams University, Matthew Bergwall and Sam Gifford, have plugged into the nation-wide healthy food movement that is sweeping college campuses and we’re excited to be a part of it.
Insatiable Foods, a startup company founded by Bergwall and Gifford, is designed to supply universities with tasty and healthy food options---satisfying the dietary needs of a health-conscious student population. The company had simple beginnings, and started when the pair offered local company, Number 9 Chips and Salsa’s products as a gluten-free and organic snack alternative. From there, the demands have skyrocketed and now Insatiable Foods has extended their offerings by distributing products from popular vendors like Risebar and Taza Chocolate.
“Today’s students have grown up in an era of transparency with continual access to information. As a direct result of transparency around food production, our interest was piqued in that industry,” said Bergwall and Gifford. “Insatiable Foods is a great way to get tasty, gluten-free and organic products in the mouths of college students—and the story of where that food came from into their brains.”
MedCap Advisors has seen tremendous opportunity within Insatiable Foods and tapped into the college-health food market by using our insight and experience with proprietary investments.
As food ventures have hit record highs (venture capital has injected $350 million into the sector last year) MedCap Advisors is supportive of business pursuits that provide an opportunity for growth and a commitment to wellness.
