Nestlé USA is expanding its commitment to innovation in the food industry through a new partnership with Rabobank and RocketSpace to support startups for the Terra Food + Agtech Accelerator program. Nestlé will collaborate with Terra and other corporate collaborators to select and coach the most innovative and disruptive startups in the food and agricultural industry.
The initiative deepens Nestlé’s commitment to open innovation in search of healthier and more sustainable food products. It is part of Nestlé’s purpose of enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future.
Nestlé expects to support 20 startups over the duration of the two 6-month accelerator programs to explore new and improved ways to produce, sell and distribute food. Nestlé will work with a diverse cross-section of startups, selected from more than 1,000 applicants, with the goal of finding healthier and more sustainable products and services that enhance the quality of people’s lives. Registration for companies interested in taking part opens on June 21, and details are available at www.terraaccelerator.com.
The first of two Nestlé-hosted Terra programs will be selected in fall 2017. The call for applications for the second cohort will be open in early 2018.
