The Curt Bergfors Food Planet Prize

Looking for the potential gamechangers

The Curt Bergfors Food Planet Prize aims to identify, showcase, and reward important initiatives to re-invent our food chain and help establish a sustainable food system within planetary boundaries.

The Food Planet Prize includes two awards:


Scalable solutions with global potential

This award rewards initiatives that have already contributed to a sustainable food system or have documented efficacy to do so – and have significant potential to scale and influence globally.


Innovative solutions that can transform the food system

This award rewards brand new ideas that can hold keys to fundamentally change our food system, also with global potential.

Each award includes a prize of USD 1 million.

Nominees will be evaluated, and awardees selected by an international jury of leading specialists in the relevant key areas, working in cooperation with scientists at the Stockholm Resilience Centre at Sweden’s Stockholm University. The jury is chaired by Johan Rockström, joint director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany, and the Prize Committee is headed by Line Gordon, director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre.
