The food and beverage startup Hatchery Chicago is partnering with the food, snack, and beverage giant PepsiCo.
PepsiCo's North America Nutrition division will be working with The Hatchery to help entrepreneurs grow their food startups.
The goal of the partnership is to "foster collaboration with the long-term goal of making high-quality, delicious products available to more people in more places," according to a recent press release from PepsiCo.
The Hatchery Chicago is an incubator that assists small businesses in the nutrition space by providing them with the resources they need to start and expand their business. The incubator works with entrepreneurs from the start to finish and helps them with access to production space, funding, and resources.
The non-profit is building its new location in a food desert in the west side of Chicago by the East Garfield Park.
Now, with PepsiCo's help, the incubator will also be able to offer additional resources and expertise.
