Although there is a massive number of food tech enabled startups all over the world only few of them can succeed globally, determining the main factors which affect success or failure are still a challenge. In this paper, industrial engineering fundamentals are used to develop the startup structure and workplace design in two main areas; layout design to improve the work environment as well as flow of workers and flow of materials, supply chain management to design push-pull hybrid system and demand forecasting using non-stationary exponential smoothing method. © 2021 IEEE.
