With one competition coming to a close, we're already eagerly looking ahead to the next — the United Nations World Food Forum Startup Innovation Awards, powered by XTC.

At XTC, we want to give a platform to bright startups who we believe can make a global impact with their ideas. With categories of Better Production, Better Nutrition, Better Environment, and Better Life concerning healthy diets and a healthy planet, the WFF Startup Innovation Awards are a true embodiment of that mission; we're delighted to introduce you to this year's finalists.
