Food is the new fashion – many new startups have focused on brand, specialization, and comfort to attract new consumers. Crowd Cow is a craft meat delivery platform which works with small family farms to let users choose their cow and their cut. For our San Francisco Bay Area residents, Farmstead delivers incredibly fresh, locally-sourced produce and grocery essentials directly to your doorstep the same day. Tovala is a countertop steam oven that pairs with meal deliveries that cook fresh, healthy meals. Each meal has a barcode that the oven will scan and heat up accordingly so you can cook without any effort at all.
