GREATER BAY AREA - FOOD WASTE

Overview

Brinc has developed a three month program covering Greater Bay Area, spanning Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Guangzhou, designed to support entrepreneurs who are solving the inefficiencies in the food supply chain by developing new alternatives and better processes.

One-third of all food supplied for consumption is either lost or wasted, amounting to an incredible 1.3 billion tonnes of unused produce every year. This wastage happens at every level of the agri-food supply chain. Optimizing this process through waste reduction or upcycling would unlock huge monetary value and reap massive environmental savings in parallel.

We invest in startups that upcycle food surplus and innovate to minimize food waste to save precious resources, both economic and natural, from being unnecessarily squandered.

Join the leading Food Waste program in the heart of Hong Kong and get access to one of the fastest growing urban and population centres in the world, via the Greater Bay Area.
