This is so exciting that I wanted to share the news with you! I am doing some work as a Consultant Researcher for the Curt Bergfors Food Planet Prize. I’m on the prowl for transformative innovations that have the potential to disrupt and transform the food system. Do you know of an organization or company who deserves to be nominated or highlighted? Read on!
What is the Food Planet Prize?
The Food Planet Prize will seek out and showcase solutions at every link along the circular food chain, from soil to fork and back to the soil again. Based on the notion that radical innovation is necessary if we are to reverse our current situation, the award encourages and recognizes innovative projects that disrupt existing systems and value chains, or that venture outside them altogether. Traditional environmental strategies and measures are essential, but they will not suffice in the terrifyingly short timespan that remains before global warming and other environmental threats surpass the levels our habitat – and thus life itself – can withstand.
Two prizes of 1 million USD will be awarded. The first will be given to an existing scalable solution for sustainable foods. The second will be awarded for innovative initiatives that could transform the global food sector.
Help us find the best candidates! Or maybe you are one of them?!
