From food waste to food gain
How a student competition turned waste into tasty food products
3 groups of students from the Universities of Reading, Leuven and Hohenheim were given 9 months to create a product, and at a pitch event in November team Hohenheim won first place with their ‘Banabooms’ breakfast cereal reinvention.
The students from Hohenheim are receiving financial and professional support to bring their product to Colruyt’s shelves in 2019. The other two teams are also receiving support from Colruyt and other EIT Food partners to help turn their prototypes into commercial products.
