Olam International Limited, one of the world’s leading food and agri-businesses, has extended the application deadline for its bi-annual innovation prize to 15 March 2021, citing the challenges of COVID-19 and the desire to encourage participation.
Olam supplies food, ingredients, feed and fibre to 25,200 customers worldwide. Its value chain spans over 60 countries and includes farming, processing and distribution operations, as well as a sourcing network of an estimated 5 million farmers.
The Olam Prize for Innovation in Food Security is awarded in partnership with Agropolis Foundation, which brings together over 40 member institutions, public authorities, and civil society actors for dialogue and interaction on agriculture, food and environment research. The winner will receive a US$75,000 grant to scale the innovation.
"Olam is on a journey to reimagine global agriculture and food systems, and the Olam Prize recognises scientists who are helping to lead the way," said Kamesh Ellajosyula, Chief Innovation Officer for Olam Food Ingredients. "We want to give the greatest number of innovators the opportunity to participate in the programme.”
