The Arrell Food Prizes recognize global excellence in the broad area of food innovation and community impact. In 2021, two awards will be given.
The first award recognizes a researcher, or group of researchers, who has advanced understanding of food production, processing, distribution, consumption, safety and/or human nutrition, with a significant positive impact on society.
The second award recognizes an individual, or group of individuals, who has contributed to improved nutritional health and/or food security, with a focus on strengthening disadvantaged communities. Citizens of any country are eligible for nomination, with no restrictions on gender, race, religion, creed, or residency.
Each of the two prizes will be worth $125,000 CAD comprising a $100,000 cash award for the personal use of recipients and up to $25,000 per award for travel and accommodation of the recipients.
Deadline: February 28, 2021.
