Innovation Connections from Tesco and WWF is a new accelerator programme that has paired pioneering start-ups with Tesco suppliers to fast-track innovation in the supply chain.
In May, a group of finalists pitched head-to-head in front of a panel of experts from Tesco and WWF, with five exciting projects each awarded funding of up to £150,000. Innovation Connections is part of a long-term partnership between Tesco and WWF that aims to halve the environmental impact of the average shopping basket.
In this podcast, Innovation Forum’s Ian Welsh speaks with representatives from the five projects.
Casey Woodward, founder and CEO of AgriSound
David Nelson, agronomy director at Branston
Oliver Kynaston, carbon calculator manager at Farm Carbon Toolkit
Conrad Young, project lead at Chirrup
Evelyn Peters, chief executive at Future by Insects.
