Calling Food Innovators! The Australian Macadamia Industry is seeking new innovative ideas to inspire packaged food product development using macadamias. Enter by December 17, 2017, and your idea could WIN you $35,000 in prizes!

The first ever Australian Macadamias Innovation Challenge kicked off in October, marking the first major stage of the industry’s new international marketing strategy. For the past decade, the demand for macadamias has been significant leading to an increase in macadamia production globally. To support our Australian growers, the Australian Macadamias Innovation Challenge aims to raise awareness of the versatility and unique flavour of macadamias.

The Innovation Challenge is inviting food professionals and students to submit innovative ideas to inspire packaged food development using macadamias. This first phase is seeking ideas for the bakery, snacks and ice cream categories, with either an Asian or Western flavour profile.

Open to current food professionals and university students studying to enter the industry, the Challenge will offer participants the chance to one of two trips to SIAL Paris — the world’s largest food exhibition — or a $5,000 cash grant towards study or career development.

The first round of finalists will be invited to pitch their ideas to a judging panel of industry experts and leading food innovators at the sensational finals event in Byron Bay in March 2018.

If you are passionate about food innovation — this Challenge is for you! To enter create a tasty new packaged food product using Australian grown macadamias as an ingredient and enter via the online entry form. You can enter individually or as a pair.

Don’t miss out on your chance to support the Australian Macadamia Industry and be in the running to win $35,000 in prizes.
