Ecotrophelia 2016 From July 2016

Ecotrophelia 2016


This highly competitive student challenge presents students with the opportunity to take a novel product idea through to the final packaged product, gaining hands-on experience of what it takes to bring an ecofriendly food or drink to market – a great approach to stimulating the industry skills base.


The Gold Prize went to a team from Nottingham Trent University for the development of ‘Fran Borjan’, a vegan, low fat luxury iced dessert made with algal protein. With a record entry of 19 teams, congratulations are also due to the other finalists, namely El Nacho from College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (Silver); Hemptations from Nottingham Trent University (Bronze); Apeel from London Metropolitan University; and Spent’N Gain from the University of Nottingham.


The teams pitched their ideas to a distinguished panel of food experts from Marks & Spencer, Coca-Cola, Mondelez, PepsiCo, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Warburtons, as well as representatives from BBSRC, Food Manufacture and Innovate UK.
