Results of The Food Hackathon 2017
The wide range of expertise gathered is what makes the hackathon special. The teams consisted of a mix of professions - agronomists, food engineers, programmers and economists - people with different professions and backgrounds, but with the commitment to the food we eat as a common denominator.
Six different concept of how we produce, distribute and consume food in a more sustainable and safe way was the result when the Food Hackathon by Krinova was held January 27-29th. For 48 hours, more than 40 participants from 20 different countries developed the following concepts and embryos for business ideas:
Zita box: a box to transport fruits and vegetables in southern countries. The design structure is more convenient than existent because it is adaptable and strong. The box is possible to 3D-print and the aim is to decrease post-harvest and transport losses (won the category “Idea with the most impact”).
Pool.farm: a platform to connect with your neighbour and make your groceries (farm, producer) together in order to avoid unnecessary transport (won the category “Audience choice”).
Make a bite: an app that will help you include more plant based food in your recipes. According to your preferences can choose the sustainable impact of your food with a specific ‘green’ scale (from meat meal to vegan).
Edugreen: facilities and easy learning about circular urban farming. Imagine a perfect combination of an insect farm, a compost, collection of rain water and much more, to feed your near neighbourhood.
Need: a scanner, the size of a pen, that can warn if food on your plate contains any of the substances you are allergic to (won the category ”The most innovative idea”).
Lazer: a technology that makes it possible to distinguish copies of food from the authentic originals. (won the category ”The idea with the greatest potential”)
