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.  

After four successful programs in which we have helped more than forty companies in the agri-food sector from all over the Netherlands, we are starting on September 7, 2022 with the fifth edition of the Business Innovation Program Food. Are you thinking about joining us? Find out during the introduction workshop on June 29, 2022 whether the program will add value for your company.

To workshop

For whom

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.
