WATCH: Paddock Chat Panel on Lion Unleashed

It’s never been easier for Australians to enjoy a good meal or drink – but there are so many more opportunities for innovation hidden below the surface of the ‘Food and Beverage’ industry, and the Lion Unleashed program by Slingshot Accelerator wants to uncover them.

One of the region’s largest food and beverage companies, boasting brands such as XXXX, Hahn SuperDry, Kirin, Dairy Farmers, Dare Iced Coffee, and Steinlager, in its portfolio, Lion is eager to explore ways to do things better at every possible point within its business.

Think your Startup or Scaleup has nothing to do with food and beverages? Think again.

The number of opportunities for innovation in this sector are significant. Looking within the spheres of production, distribution, and consumption, for example, there are opportunities to innovate agricultural processes, product production and processing, logistics, and consumer education, discovery and consumption, and more.

Lion is a company that delivers billions of dollars to the economy and has an international customer base – how could what you are working on be leveraged by their team to enhance systems or processes?

Watch our Facebook Live with John Green, Strategy & Planning Director at Lion Beer Australia; Ben Hutt, Lion Unleashed Program Manager and Entrepreneur in Residence at Slingshot Accelerator; and Renee Sargent, Head of Community at Slingshot Accelerator for about the Lion Unleashed accelerator and just how broad innovation in the ‘food and beverage’ sector can be.
