NR INSTANT PRODUCE (NRF) CONFIRMS ITS WORLDWIDE MISSION TO CREATE CIRCULAR ECONOMY FOOD SYSTEM WITH DONATION OF USD 250,000 REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE GRANT TO U.S.- BASED START UP AT FOODSHOT GLOBAL
Following its successful product launch of ‘Sabzu’ at ThaiFex 2019 and ambitious plans to take leadership role in global Specialty Foods industry, the Southeast Asia’s foods manufacturer NR Instant Produce (NRF) continues to conquer yet another proud achievement across the globe- this time in New York City- towards feeding the world through sustainability with granting the highest regenerative agriculture grant to a US-based innovation tool in advancing Soil 3.0 that’ll change the way farms live, eat, and breathe.
Earlier in 2019, NRF has announced a corporate rebranding and clear commitments to both sustain and revolutionize the foods industry as well as the specialty food business. Now, they are pioneering a path few food manufacturers have done- supporting, investing, and granting funds to innovative companies that can promise a healthy food system that can nourish 10 Billion people and sustain earthly resources.
As CEO of NRF and Chairman of Path Foundation, Mr. Danai Pathomvanich has flown to New York City to attend as one of the founding donors of initiative and a member of the selection committee to present the Moonshot Prize at FoodShot Global, a non-profit organization of world-class partners empowering bold ideas and innovative companies to accelerate the transformation to a healthy, sustainable, and equitable food system. FoodShot Global launched its investment platform in 2018 aimed to accelerate food system transformations through annual challenges called ‘Moonshot for Better Foods’- a global call for entrepreneurs, researchers, and advocates on a specific topic within the food and agriculture space. Applicants with most qualified solutions are then selected to receive grants or equity prizes from the FoodShot’s integrated capital platform. Best in-class candidates will receive equity and debt financing for their business; cash prizes will be rewarded for rising stars working within research, social enterprise, and advocacy. In 2018, Moonshot For Better Foods topic was Innovating Soil 3.0 Solutions. This year’s topic was Soil 3.0 under the theme ‘regenerative agriculture’ – an aligned mission for Path Foundation (a founding donor of FoodShot Global) and a core philosophy all too familiar to NRF.
