To help solve this pressing problem at a global level, we are launching the first Food Waste Challenge, an joint initiative created by Ingenio Foundation, a foundation originally from Campo de Cartagena (Región de Murcia) that encompasses 45 large agri-food companies and more than 10,000 farmers, created with the aim of enhancing food growth through sustainable and innovative family farming; and Kiatt Group, a British Venture Builder specialized in addressing the greatest challenges by evolving science and technology into sustainable solutions.
Through this Challenge, we aim to identify the best 5 international deep tech projects with solutions that contribute to solving the problem of food waste, and make sure that their innovations are evolved into a product or service that creates a positive social impact.
These 5 projects can either come from research and technology centres, and universities; or from start-ups and more mature SMEs with a scientific and technological base.
Through this Food Waste Challenge, the 5 selected participants will have free access to an intensive mentoring and acceleration program, where they’ll have the opportunity to work with Kiatt Group’s unique technology transfer methodology and Venture Building specialists from London, Singapore and Madrid. As the program is coordinated jointly with Ingenio Foundation, the participants will also be given access to large companies within the agri-food sector of Campo de Cartagena in Región de Murcia, one of the most innovative agricultural areas in Europe.
