It was a great pleasure to see the 9 finalists for the Food Heroes Award 2019 on stage during the international CFIA fair, honored with a true Food Hero cape. They merit to fly with their innovative ideas for reducing and valorizing food losses in the sectors of fish & seafood, fruits & vegetables, and male animals. It must not have been an easy job for the jury headed by commissioner Health and Food Safety Vytenis Andriukaitis to select the winners. All nominees with the winners marked in green: F&S: North Cape, Mussella, Seconde Vie, F&V: Envie, Choonk, Cauliflower Rice, MA: InOvo, Bickus, Bio Goat Meat.

I work on this project as a kind of design innovation manager on behalf of the Dutch Design Foundation.
