$10.8 million in Prizes to Be Won for Food Waste Reduction and Prevention
When Overeating During Covid-19 Is Still Not Enough!
The Food Waste Reduction Challenge is advertising Grand Prizes of $1.5 million to each of the most promising “ready for commercialization” solutions for:
- Food waste prevention, e.g. strengthening systems towards eliminating food waste generation (Stream A).
- food waste diversion, e.g. rerouting food surplus or waste to new channels (Steam B)
From the initial application (i.e. Phase 1) up to 30 applications will be selected and given $100,000 to demonstrate/pilot the success of their solutions with an implementation partner (e.g. farm, food processing facility, grocery retailer or restaurant) in Canada over an eight-month period (i.e. Phase 2).
Up to 12 applicants completing the demonstration/pilot (i.e. Phase 2) will be selected and given $400,000 to grow and scale up their solutions in Canada over a one-year period starting in Spring 2022 (Phase 3). And will be competing to be one of the Challenge’s two $1.5 million Grand Prize Winners.
Applications must be submitted no later than January 18, 2021 at 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time.
Please gamble responsibly. Applicants must be Canadian and legally accountable. Other challenges will be launched in Spring 2021 focusing on investments towards commercializing technologies at the prototyping and testing level that extend food life or transform food waste
