The search for New Zealand’s most promising food and beverage innovator has ended. The top 5 entrants are to be announced very shortly and will present to a panel of judges on October 31st. Good luck to you all!

As a joint venture between Ministry of Awesome and Foodstuffs South Island, one lucky innovator will receive a $95,000 package to help get their products market ready and stocked on New World shelves. This includes expert support from Foodsouth and Ministry of Awesome, a year in an innovation hub from Blinc Innovation and media coverage from Stuff.

If this wasn’t enough, as the Creative Partner of this competition we’re excited to be providing design and marketing expertise to the winner as well. We can’t wait to see who we will be working with and what kind of innovative products they’ll be bringing to New Zealand.
