The Submission of Applications for the Tenth Competition of Innovations and New Food Products Development Ecotrophelia Slovenija 2018 Has Started

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia – Chamber of Agricultural and Food Enterprises holds the tenth anniversary Competition for Innovations and New Food Products Development Ecotrophelia Slovenija 2018.

As part of the competition, students can submit their original food products based on the use of modern environmentally friendly and sustainable technologies. The food products offered by students should be based on innovations in at least one development segment (raw materials, packaging, energy-efficient production, use of recycled water, new types of logistics services and distribution, short supply chains, etc.)

During the competition, students have an opportunity not only to gain experience in teamwork, organizing the development and promotion of new food products, but also to establish links with potential employers and investors, and in the future—to establish their own enterprise.

The winning team will represent Slovenia at the European competition Ecotrophelia Europe 2018, which will be held in October as part of the Sial Exhibition in Paris.

Applications for participation will be accepted until 30 March 2018. Registration fee: 50 EUR (including VAT). The national competition will be held on 7 June 2018 in the premises of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Ljubljana. Summing up and awarding ceremony will be held on 15 June 2018.
