Some of the finalists include Cultured Decadence, Bond Pets, Fumi Ingredients, Flying SpArk, Back of the Yards algae sciences, Fishency Innovation, eniferBio, Nanomik, Pando Nutrition, Poultrix, AgUnity and more.

The next phase of the competition would involve the finalists joining a three-day final event in The Netherlands, originally planned from 11-13 May 2020. Due to the COVID-19 concern, this final event will be rescheduled to a new date in autumn 2020.

The final event in the Netherlands in autumn 2020 will offer a dynamic ‘greenhouse and pressure cooker’ environment with a pitching competition and plenty of interaction with industry experts, fellow start-ups and an international jury. The new dates for the final event will be communicated in May.

Depending on the business concept, the winner will be rewarded with a suitable scientific (on-farm) validation trial, including a validation report and consulting through internal or external experts on topics critical for their business.

The competition acknowledges the best breakthrough innovations within livestock farming, aquaculture and NFTC’s new category, alternative food proteins.
