Curt Bergfors Foundation — Food Planet Prize

The Curt Bergfors Food Planet Prize is the largest monetary award in the global food arena. It rewards innovative solutions that can help us shift to sustainable food systems within a ten-year timeframe. The Prize  is the Curt Bergfors Foundation’s primary tool to encourage agents of change and promote game-changing initiatives. To  save the Food Planet, we must accelerate change!

The 2021 IPCC[Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] climate report confirms that there is no more time to waste. It’s Code Red! We, therefore, search for solutions that can be applied at a rapid pace and across food systems – preferably globally.


Nominees can be individuals, groups, organizations, or businesses fully committed to sustainable food or distinctly identified projects implemented by existing companies and institutions. We welcome a broad range of initiatives. They can be science-based or derived from practice, industrial or crafts-based, entrepreneurial or institutional, behavioral, or high-tech. Still, they must have the potential for broad scaling and application.
