Food manufacturers’ interest in fintech – patents data

Analysis of patent filings shows a declining level of fintech-related applications in the industry over the past year.

By Data Journalism Team

Research and innovation in fintech in the food manufacturing sector has declined in the last year, according to GlobalData.

The most recent figures show the number of fintech-related patent applications in the industry stood at nine in the three months ending March – down from 18 over the same period in 2021, GlobalData, Just Food’s parent company, said.

GlobalData, Just Food’s parent company, tracks patent filings and approvals from offices around the world. Using textual analysis, as well as official patent classifications, these patents are grouped into thematic areas and linked to key companies across various industries.

Fintech is seen by GlobalData as a disruptive force facing companies in the coming years and is one of the areas companies investing resources in now are expected to reap rewards from.

PepsiCo Inc was the top fintech innovator in the food manufacturing sector in the latest quarter. The company filed six fintech-related patents in the three months ending March. That was down from eight over the same period in 2021.
