And The Winner is….

The Taste Your Future campaign has announced the winners of its bursary contest!

Students from across Ontario submitted their ideas for a new food or beverage product, or for a process that could improve food and beverage manufacturing.  We are proud to announce the contest winners:

Maker & Designer Category

Danielle Laforest from the University of Guelph, for her product idea, Pure Herb. Danielle’s idea for frozen herbs packaged into meal- and cocktail-themed kits will help reduce food waste and inspire home cooks and cocktail-makers.

Scientist, Programmer, or Engineer Category

Angie Ibrahim from McMaster University, for her product idea, ICI Water. Angie’s idea makes room temperature beverages feel cold by infusing them with a flavourless compound that stimulates the mouth’s coldness receptors.

Taste Your Future’s bursary contest is grateful for the support of its partners: Food and Beverage Ontario, the Golden Horseshoe Food and Farming Alliance and District Ventures Kitchen/Food Starter.

It was our pleasure to be involved in the judging and to provide career guidance and support to the winners going forward.
