In this category we find concepts and interventions that are in line with a healthier lifestyle, both in the field of healthy ingredients, lifestyle, target group nutrition and interventions that have an impact on healthy eating behavior and mental aspects of health through food concepts.

In this category we find concepts and interventions that strive towards sustainable food systems, circular concepts and food chains, also energy and water related, and business/services based on sustainable trade not on profit maximization, as well as social enterprises.

FoodManShip Awards – We’re on fire!

The FoodManShip awards are given to those students who are outstanding on a combination of 5 aspects:

  • Conceptual or systemic thinking – ability to think in abstract concepts,
  • Creativity - ability to think outside the box,
  • Entrepreneurship- ability to grab an opportunity and go with it, and
  • Presentation- ability to convince with a professional pitch.

We present the FoodManship awards in each category of the HAS Food Experience. An award winner of each category is chosen by an expert jury. The jury will be a combination of HAS professors, HAS alumni, press representative and ambassadors (relations in the food market)
