Announcing the 48 initiatives in the running for the 2024 Food Planet Prize

There is excitement in the air at the Food Planet Prize office, today is a very special day. It is the day when we confirm and share with you our longlist for the 2024 prize. Out of the roughly one thousand nominees that were registered through our website and examined by our team this year, these forty-eight initiatives represent the very best and most exciting. The initiatives come from all corners of the world and represent a huge variety of elements that together make up our food system, just the way we like it.

Our team will now look even deeper into these longlisted initiatives. Really getting to know them, trying to understand what they are all about, how big the potential impact would be if they succeed, and how likely it is for this to happen. In April we will have identified 8-10 shortlisted initiatives out of this selection to be presented to our jury, each one a worthy winner from the perspective of The Curt Bergfors Foundation.

New for this year is that during the first few months of 2024, we will share some of the research material we produce on the longlisted nominees with you. This will happen in the shape of short articles published here on our website and will also be publicized through our social media channels.

Even if there can be only one winner of the world’s biggest environmental award in the end, all of these nominees do something amazing in their own right, and they all contribute to the urgently needed transformation of our food system. And we really want to tell you about them so that perhaps you can support them too, help them become more successful, or at the very least become inspired by their work.

Lastly, nominations are always open. If you have someone in mind that you think should win the Food Planet Prize, nominate them here through the website. It literally takes three minutes and it could change the world.
