Amersfoort, January 8, 2019 – Nutreco has today announced it is a partner in next year’s Odyssey (formerly DutchChain) Hackathon, the largest blockchain hackathon in the world. The event, based in the Netherlands, gathers together hundreds of coders, developers and creative thinkers to solve societal challenges put forward by potential customers.
The 2018 hackathon saw the development of 63 prototypes, including one solving a €33 billion medicine fraud and another building a legal cannabis chain together with the Dutch National Police.
As a partner to next year’s event, Nutreco has devised a societal challenge to be solved and is inviting potential hackathon attendees to register to be part of this particular ‘track’. Our challenge aims to build the next-level infrastructure for an open, sustainable and fair global food market. This builds on the Nutreco mission of Feeding the Future, which sees us contribute to producing sufficient nutritious high-quality feed for a growing population in a sustainable way.
“We can fulfill our mission but we cannot do this alone,” explains Nutreco CEO Rob Koremans. “As Nutreco, we constantly look for the best ideas from the brightest minds to work with us on this journey. As a partner to Odyssey, we want to support a global ecosystem that connects us to breakthrough technology. The solutions that come out of next year’s four-day event can really have an impact on the way our industry tackles key issues.”
Nutreco wants to work on its track with individuals and organizations that are keen to re-write the rules, have cutting-edge ambition, think outside the box and believe in finding new ways to solve the planet’s food problems. Find more information or sign up the track here
