Food and Beverage companies have come out strong in the Boston WIN Lab this year, making up five of the overall twenty three companies joining from all over New England. With products ranging from simple sauces to healthy pizza crusts, these entrepreneurs will be sure to leave your stomach satisfied. It may come as no surprise that foodie entrepreneurs are making up almost a fourth of the WIN Lab cohort this year with food innovation spaces continuing to pop up all over the city. In fact, four of those five WINners will be coming straight from Commonwealth Kitchen in Dorchester. Our food and beverage entrepreneurs are:
