The Nutreco Feed & Food Tech Challenge 2022

“What is your breakthrough innovation in Feeding the Future that CANNOT wait?”

Our Global Feed & Food Tech Challenge brings start-ups from around the world together to share their stories, connect with likeminded people and get your ideas validated.

This year’s NFFTC received over 100 submissions from 48 countries. These were narrowed down to 15 finalists, who received support from Nutreco mentors to develop a pitch deck and business case that they defended at a virtual pitching event in June.

A jury of industry experts selected  five top candidates from these finalists. The top five attended an in-person finale this week in the Netherlands to pitch their ideas one last time and network with other start-ups, investors, and Nutreco experts in a program that included speakers and interactive discussions.
