About this program
Do you see opportunities for your company to contribute to a sustainable and healthy food system? With the Business Innovation Program Food (BIPF) we help you to get a clear picture of which ideas are promising and how you can translate these into concrete new business models for your company. Start your adventure and turn your idea into a successful business case.
Who is it for?
The Business Innovation Program Food is for entrepreneurs in the agri-food sector who are committed to transforming a promising idea into a new business model. Participation is open to companies that contribute with this idea to accelerate the transition to a sustainable and healthy food system. These are startups or innovative SMEs that are active in the agri-food sector in the broadest sense. Think of agriculture and horticulture, the food processing industry, data and technology companies and (logistics) service providers.

"During the program you are in an innovative environment, in addition to looking more critically at your own business, you also learn a lot from others.”

Marieke Vanthoor, Grassa: "The Business Innovation Program Food helps very much to specify the customer demand. What purpose does your technology serve and what is the right target group are questions you work with extensively. A technology driven company can sometimes lose sight of the customer, BIPF helps to gain focus."
