Mars Food Australia has selected six innovative food start-ups to take part in the inaugural Seeds of Change Accelerator program.
The accelerator program is designed to help early-stage Australian food-focused start-ups fast-track growth and build a healthier and more sustainable future. A panel of expert judges chose the final six start-ups from 15 finalists shortlisted out of 224 applicants nationwide.
In addition to a grant of up to $40,000 AUD, each of the final six start-ups will undertake a tailored four-month program to help tackle the biggest individual challenges to their business growth, whether that’s branding, product development, market intelligence, sales or supply chain.
The finalists have access to an extensive support system to help them become the next generation of food businesses transforming the way Australians eat and share meals. The Accelerator program also offers a series of face-to-face workshops and access to a team of expert mentors and advisers from within the Mars business and across the wider Australian food innovation network.
