We’re excited to partner with Rabo Direct’s initiative, Food Furore, to find solutions to address food waste!


Are you fighting food waste?

If you are working on innovations to prevent, reduce or avoid food losses across the Food & Ag value chain, we want to hear from you. We will select six companies to pitch at Food Furore in Berlin on March 26.


You should apply if…

You have developed packaging that prolongs food shelf life and is sustainable.

You have invented a technology that allows customers to read the actual freshness of food, rather than blindly relying on the expiration date.

You have a vision for a predictive supply chain of surplus food in commerce and the food service industry to food rescue organizations.

You have a novel idea to track consumer food waste…

This is just the tip of the iceberg. All ideas are welcome – we want to hear from you!
