The Nutreco Feed & Food Tech Challenge 

The Nutreco Feed & Food Tech Challenge gives bright entrepreneurs creating some of the best breakthrough innovations in livestock farming, aquaculture and alternative food proteins the opportunity to pitch their ideas, get valuable feedback through an open innovation platform and network with other start-ups and experts – all with the aim to accelerate the development of their fantastic innovations.


Start-ups from across the globe apply by submitting their breakthrough innovations that address critical challenges in the feed and food value chain. The jury chooses 15 finalists to pitch their ideas, and the three winning breakthrough projects receive scientific, on-farm validation trials and expert consultations, with a value from €5,000 to €50,000.

Nutreco held the third edition of the Feed & Food Tech Challenge in 2020 as a three-day virtual event, due to the challenges of COVID-19. We saw 112 startups participate from around the globe, from 57 nationalities, and the winning innovations were eniferBio, Poultrix and Bond Pet Foods.
