Podcast interview by our former colleague Aäron De Fruyt, with Thibault Geerardyn, Business Developer of Rikolto from Belgium, Victor Engelen, a young food entrepreneur from Belgium who has created granola, Délicé, from waste streams, Hilda Okoth, our #YouthinAg expert from Tanzania who guides Rikolto´s Generation Food incubator and Chris Leopold, CEO of Yields of Africa, a young food entrepreneur from Arusha in Tanzania.
In this episode of the Rikolto podcast, our former colleague Aäron, chats with Thibault, Victor, Hilda, and Chris. They take us from Leuven (Belgium) and Arusha (Tanzania) to tell us all about how young entrepreneurs are changing food systems. They provide in-depth insights into why it is so important to support young entrepreneurs like Victor and Chris on their entrepreneurial food journeys and answer many more questions, like: how does Rikolto allow young entrepreneurs to put their ideas for their own business in the food sector into practice? What is Generation Food? And what have been the challenges and lessons learned by these young entrepreneurs involved in the Generation Food project?
