The most recent edition of the FoodFactory-4-Us student competition, organised by ISEKI-Food Association within the FAIRCHAIN project, challenged teams of students to design projects for the modernization of a traditional food that could contribute to the development of regional food value chains. Quinoa, octopus, algae, Dadih, fermented shrimp, Porto sauce, Meitauza and “pan de muerto” were some of the local specialties upon which teams from around the world based their entries. The winning project, submitted by team “Nutrimento” from the University of Agriculture of Faisalabad (Pakistan), uses local grains and fruits to make an instant cereal high in nutritional value and low in cost to consumers. See the LinkedIn post about the winners here. The winners received a cash prize sponsored by ISEKI and will join the FAIRCHAIN Food Hack 2023, organised by another FAIRCHAIN partner, Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE).
