Flour Mills of Nigeria Plc (FMN) has begun the second edition of its Prize for Innovation competition, which aims to highlight new and imaginative ways to achieve sustainability in Nigeria’s food value chain.
The prize will focus on important aspects of the food value chain that are critical to the transformation and sustainable development of the food systems in the country. The focus for this year’s Prize is on developing local content and capacity in Nigeria.
Geeky Nigeria reports that FMN launched the Prize for Innovation to encourage new ideas and innovations in the food and agro-allied sector in Nigeria and across the continent and how these can impact and enable a sustainable food system in Nigeria.
FMN’s Prize for innovation is looking for solid ideas for improving local content development through previously untapped resources and technologically powered solutions to reduce dependence on food importation in the food and agro-allied sector in Nigeria.
Participants in the contest will develop novel solutions to facilitate a paradigm shift from dependence on imported raw materials to developing local capacities for the purpose of sustaining local communities, and stand a chance of winning the star prize of N5 million.
The prize is open to registered food or agro-allied business in Nigeria or students with an interest in the food and agro-allied industry.
