Nestlé is shaking the frozen food industry, and we can’t wait for more

Wildscape is a success story of corporate innovation. It delivered something that is fresh and innovative.

You’d expect to find Korean chili cauliflower with Brussels sprouts and peri-peri portobello mushrooms with chickpeas on a restaurant menu, but not on a freezer shelf in the local supermarket. Corporate startup Wildscape wants to change your mind about that.

Three years ago, Nestlé invested $50 million to open Foundry Foods Inc., a corporate innovation hub for frozen foods located in Ohio, USA. That’s where a small team built and launched Wildscape in just about 9 months.

Emily Hoffman, co-founder and marketing manager of the brand, says that Foundry Foods Inc. allows entrepreneurs to create and experiment with new and unique food products. At its core, Wildscape is about celebrating nature at its full glory, so the opportunities to tap into it are endless.
