A selection of food reshapers to inspire you!

The Food Planet Prize receives hundreds of nominations every year from all corners of the world. After thorough vetting by the Secretariat and its specialists and careful assessment by the Food Planet Prize Jury, we award two US 1$ million Prizes to the Laureates we believe have the greatest potential to help us transition to sustainable food systems rapidly.

Along the way, we also recognize a broader spectrum of nominees whose ideas can favorably impact the future of food. We present these initiatives under the banner “Editors’ Pick” to manifest how we can address various highlighted themes in the overall Food Planet Challenge. We also include them in this directory.

The directory presents these outstanding initiatives in all their diversity: from nature-based solutions to AI-assisted FoodTech and behavioral science. We hope it inspires you to actively engage in the sustainable food arena. You might find a startup to invest in, a team to mentor, or facts and findings to further your own research. We tracked down these heroes – the Food Planet game-changers that are waiting for you to join our community!
