  • Dairy Farmers of Canada and Bioenterprise Canada have partnered on The Green Pursuit: A Sustainability & Innovation Challenge to award $50,000 in prizing.
  • Submissions are now closed and the top ten projects have been selected.
  • Judging will take place via a panel of industry experts on October 5, 2023.

The Green Pursuit is a national business pitch competition that was created in partnership between Dairy Farmers of Canada and Bioenterprise, Canada’s Food & Agri-Tech Engine. The challenge is designed to find new innovative sustainability solutions for the agriculture and food & beverage sectors in Canada and includes $50,000 in prizes.

Dairy farmers understand the interconnectedness of sustainability efforts and how organizations can work across the sector in complementary ways that all contribute to our shared goal of a carbon-neutral future.

The program launched in May of 2023 and after reviewing all submissions, we’re excited to announce the top 10 nominees. Representing the 10 highest scoring projects, the nominees will participate in a virtual event on October 5, 2023 where they will pitch their business and/or demo their technology to a panel of experts who will ultimately determine the winner as well as the runner up.

First prize will receive a $45,000 cash prize and the runner up will receive a $5,000 cash prize. The applications will be scored on the problem or opportunity they are addressing, their unique solution, the team’s experience, and the overall sustainability impact on the agriculture, food, and drink sector in Canada.
