Selection criteria included:
- Potential to shape the future of the industry

"Our technology is very much needed in the food industry right now, as foodborne illness and recalls are on the rise," said Dr. Michael Koeris, Corvium co-founder and chief innovation officer. "We were able to demonstrate to the Outsell community how we can lower food safety risks, and this award validates our value proposition.

"Food touches home for all. The value of the data and insights that Corvium provides has the ability to impact the lives of billions.
