The Challenges for InnovateFood.dk in 2017
Arla Foods Challenge
How to secure the relevance of dairy in the sustainable diets of the future?
Today we face a global challenge to transform our food systems and our food consumption patterns in order to secure a sustainable future. Agriculture is identified as one of the major contributors to global warming and puts pressure on limited planetary resources like freshwater and biodiversity, and our diets have been pinpointed as possible levers of change.
Chr. Hansen challenge
How can awareness and acceptance of bacteria to fight food waste be enhanced?
We challenge you to come up with creative ideas and solutions to enhance the awareness and acceptance of good bacteria as a way to fight food waste. What does it take to make consumers understand the benefit of bacteria? Are they willing to accept products with a prolonged shelf life? How should dairy manufacturers market a yoghurt with extended shelf life to consumers?
How can we generate new and sustainable sources of high-quality food with protein from insects to meet the future protein demand?
The insect industry is still young and needs innovation in all segments of the insect value chain: insect feed, industrial insect production, processing of insect biomass, and product application of insect-based food. We challenge you to innovate insect-based food products made of ground buffalo larvae (mealworms).
