JAPFA is looking for startup and scale-up teams around the world to submit agritech and foodtech solutions to improve the effectiveness and efficiency in the production of five protein groups: poultry, aquaculture, swine, dairy and cattle. Top teams will have a chance to secure a fully-funded pilot project with JAPFA to explore a broader partnership and customer relationship.
As a leading pan-Asian, industrialized agri-food company dedicated to feeding emerging Asia with essential proteins, the JAPFA business encompasses the entire food supply chain from feed to farm to fork. With already over three billion people living in their target markets, over 40% of the world’s total population, JAPFA is looking for bold ideas that re-imagine smarter and more sustainable technologies for every stage of the world’s existing agriculture and food systems.
Teams are invited to apply with solutions in any of the key protein groups, at any stage of the feed to food process. Through this challenge, JAPFA is looking to find the world’s top teams developing innovative solutions in feed, farming and food tech, and then work closely with them to change the face of Asia’s protein production.
The winning teams will be awarded:
- A JAPFA-funded pilot project to test and refine the feasibility and viability of the technology solution to be implemented in the JAPFA business.
- Access to test on facilities for piloting (e.g. on research farms, feed mills, etc.) within 6-8 months.
- Possible projects including technology trials, business application projects and further co-development, depending on the stage of the proposed solution.
