FoodTech Challenge sponsored by Damstahl is a new innovation competition being held from 28-30 October at the trade fair FoodTech 2014 in MCH Messecenter Herning, where the visitors can follow the competition during all three days.

Young students are eager to participate in the 3-day innovation competition. This is clearly apparent from the number of entrants signed up for FoodTech Challenge, which is held at Northern Europe’s largest trade fair for food technolgy, FoodTech, in MCH Messecenter Herning, Denmark, from Tuesday to Thursday next week.

“The huge amount of interest has been completely overwhelming. We received 138 applications and among the 25, which have been selected, eight different nations are represented. They are all students who are studying at a Danish educational institution. Countries where the applicants come from include Nigeria, Egypt and China, as well as several other European countries,” explains Mads Kinch Clemmensen from Foodjob Danmark, who is responsible for recruiting the students.

FoodTech Challenge is an open innovation competition, where five leading companies from the food industry – Arla Foods, Barry Callebaut, DuPont, GEA Filtration and Marel – each set a challenge, which five selected student teams have to find a solution to.

An international panel of judges will follow the process throughout the 3 trade fair days and the winner will be announced on the last day, Thursday 30 October.
