CONTEST DEADLINE EXTENDED TO APRIL 30TH

Are you a student with a great idea for a new food and beverage product or process?

Submit a video with your idea to win $2000 and a mentorship with a food and beverage industry expert!

The Taste Your Future Bursary Contest is your chance to stir up a career in food and beverage processing and win great prizes.

This contest is an exciting new initiative from Food and Beverage Ontario, an organization that represents food and beverage processors in Ontario. As part of our Taste Your Future campaign, we are reaching out to students to encourage them to choose a career in food and beverage processing, the largest manufacturing industry in Ontario.

Entering is easy: either individually or as part of a team, students can record a video of their great idea and submit it by April 30, 2017 using the online application available on this website.

Students can enter the contest either as a “Maker and Designer” or a “Scientist, Programmer and Engineer.” The “Maker and Designer” category is for students with an idea for a new food or beverage product. The “Scientist, Programmer and Engineer” category is for students with an idea for a new process, software application, tool or machinery for food and beverage processing.

We look forward to hearing your exciting new ideas!
