EcoTrophelia – meet the future stars of the food industry

In this episode of the Food Matters Live podcast, we are looking to the future.

Specifically, at the food innovators who may well be shaping the industry for years to come.

EcoTrophelia UK is a national competition where students design eco-innovative food products.

The winners go on to compete in a European final and, as well as receiving a cash prize, some of the entrants could see their products end up on supermarket shelves.

The competition is organised jointly by the Institute of Food Science and Technology, and Campden BRI.

The competition is open to teams of students registered at a university or other establishment of scientific or technical higher education. 

We went along to the UK final, which was held at Sainsbury’s HQ in central London in June.

From all at Food Matters Live, a huge congratulations to each of the finalists.

Visit the EcoTrophelia website to find out how you can enter a team into next’s year competition.
