Meet the Generation Food entrepreneurs: They are young, ambitious and the driving force behind food system change
Our food systems are in dire need of a new generation of innovators to make them more sustainable. Arusha’s food system is no different. Who better than young entrepreneurs to be the driving force behind the needed food system change? Buzzing with fresh and innovative ideas, young entrepreneurs have an enormous – often untapped – potential.
To harness this potential, Rikolto organised a Generation Food Hackathon in collaboration with Anza, Tanzania Horticulture Association and Arusha City Council. From 27 to 28 August, 160 young entrepreneurs assembled in Arusha to develop their business ideas and contribute each in their own way to a more sustainable food system.
