FOOD TECH Pioneers
Jordan French is a combination of engineer, intellectual-property attorney, and dynamic creative with a penchant for rolling up his sleeves to market, connect, and build brands.
Jordan French is best known as the cofounder of the 3D food printing pioneer with NASA origins, BeeHex. French worked for NASA's Mars Gravity Biosatellite Program in 2004 and 2005, which looked at bone loss rates in mice. Mousetronauts, as they were called, paved the way for NASA to look into food systems, spurring the groundbreaking work of Anjan Contractor, the inventor of NASA's first 3D food printer. French, named a "top growth hacker" by CIO magazine, helped break the market in fresh-food automation and the partnership between BeeHex and Donatos and Grote Company founder, Jim Grote. In 2017 BeeHex raised a $1 million seed round to build fresh-food printers for desserts and baked goods, including pizza.
