Our Story

University of Cambridge Research

Foodsteps was founded by Anya Doherty while she was researching sustainable food systems at the University of Cambridge. Anya’s work included co-leading the largest experimental trial to date into carbon labelling for food, and undertaking an environmental impact assessment of Cambridge’s own food offering.

Launching Foodsteps

Seeing the opportunity to apply the work directly to the food industry, Anya brought together a team of sustainability scientists and software engineers under Foodsteps in early 2019.



Innovate UK Sustainability Innovation Fund Winner 2020

In 2020, Foodsteps won funding from Innovate UK's Sustainable Innovation Fund for the development of the Foodsteps Platform. Foodsteps launched with flagship trial partners in 2020.

Launching the Foodsteps Platform

After completing trials with commerical food brands, Foodsteps has launched its Platform for the wider industry. The aim of the platform is to make it easy and accessible for any food business to measure, reduce and communicate their environmental impact.
