JAKARTA, KalderaNews.com – The Green Food Contest is a competition for students who have finished their undergraduate studies from six countries in the Southeast Asia region: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
The competition aims to engage students who want to apply their scientific strengths to one of the key sustainability issues facing the food industry: finding plant-based alternatives in relation to mitigating the impact of the current (animal-based) food system. Participants in the competition will have to submit a research proposal with a focus on solving a relevant problem in this field.
Plant-based food refers to plant-based meat, seafood, eggs, and diary. The interest for plant-based alternatives to animal-based food production is driven by the realization that animal-based food production comes with high costs in terms of sustainability.

The Green Food Contest targets students who graduated as of January 2021 or students in their final semester (expected to graduate not later than March 2023) who have an academic background in food technology, food science and biotechnology, and other related fields.
- Students need to have the nationality, reside and study at an Educational Institution in one of the following six countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
- Applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree with minimum Honours (Distinction) or its equivalent (graduated as of January 2021) or students in their final semester (expected to graduate not later than March 2023) and the ability to pursue research in the candidate’s proposed field of advanced study.
- Students must have the passion to apply their scientific strengths to one of the key sustainability issues facing the food industry: finding plant-based alternatives in relation to mitigating the impact of the current (animal-based) food system.
The competition is initiated by IMCD: a global leader in the distribution and formulation of specialty ingredients, through its “IMCD Cares” Programme. “IMCD Cares” will offer a scholarship to the winner of this contest to pursue a full-time Master’s degree (by research) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore: MSc (Research) in Plant Biology.
Proposals for the competition will be assessed by a jury of experts. Participants in the competition shortlisted for the winning proposal will have to apply and pass NTU’s regular application process, before the jury will determine the winner of the competition.
Nuffic Southeast Asia is coordinating the implementation of the competition, including supporting the jury and follow-up support to the winner.
