Food Planet Prize Winners and Finalists

Reshaping the global food system requires a broad range of approaches and ideas. Many stakeholders are  already shifting to sustainable solutions. Some aim to  disrupt entire value chains.  Fewer  have the potential to scale broadly.  These are the food system game-changers we reward.

They are  social enterprises, startups, research institutes, grassroots organizations, and more. Vetted from hundreds of  nominations,  then  assessed, and ranked, the winning initiatives go through a thorough evaluation process before being elected by our jury of world-leading food systems experts. They represent some of the crucial areas we must explore to rescue the Food Planet. 

The Food Planet Prize is always awarded to the candidates with the greatest potential to  help humanity shift to resilient food systems and achieve food security within this decade. Winners of the 2022 Prize will be announced in November. We are currently presenting the 10 finalists for the 2022 Prize.

Meet the  food system innovators 

In 2021, GreenWave and B4Plastics won US 2$ million each, the world's biggest environmental award.
