About The Olam Prize For Innovation In Food Security

Start Your Business In 30 Days

Olam International, in partnership with Agropolis Foundation, is on the hunt for ground-breaking scientific research that can deliver transformational impacts within global agriculture and win a USD$75,000 grant to support development and implementation.

Unlike other research awards, the Olam Prize for Innovation in Food Security requires clear evidence of potential short-term impact on food availability, affordability, adequacy, and accessibility. The fourth edition of the biennial Prize follows the recent warning from the UN World Food Programme that the COVID-19 pandemic will double the number of people suffering acute hunger by the end of 2020, bringing food security firmly into the world’s spotlight.

As a result, the Olam Prize aims to support breakthrough innovations so that together with people, it can re-imagine agriculture for greater food security. It aims to support scientific research that can deliver transformational impacts within global agriculture.

How It Works

The prize is awarded in partnership with Agropolis Foundation. It recognizes an innovative scientific research project for its potential impact on the availability, accessibility, affordability, and adequacy of food, in line with UN SDG#2: End Hunger.

In the end, the winner will receive an unrestricted US$75,000 grant for the scaling up of proven research. Applications are welcomed from academic or research institutions, civil societies, and the private sector, and can focus on any region, environment, crop or part of the agricultural supply chain.


Only applications received before 30 November 2020 will be considered for publicity opportunities on Olam’s corporate channels. Then, after the entry closes, applications will be judged by an independent jury of experts and awarded in conjunction with the Agropolis Louis Malassis International Scientific Prizes for Agriculture and Food.

The deadline for application is 11 January 2021 23:59 CET (France). So, if you have had innovations that can deliver transformational impact within global agriculture, this is for you. Use this link to read more and apply. https://www.olamgroup.com/sustainability/reimagine/olam-food-prize.html
