The Collectif Récolte team was present at the 2022 edition of SIAL Canada. Discover our contribution to the largest food innovation trade show in North America.
Animated by two members of our team and a special guest, Collectif Récolte organized a conference entitled “Challenges and opportunities for innovation for sustainable food systems” as part of its work with the Nourish Innovation program. Nadia, program coordinator, Maggie, project officer for Nourish Innovation, and our guest Pedro Perez, owner of Tout cru! welcomed around fifty participants to the conference. Interesting exchanges took place about the characteristics of models that contribute to the transition towards resilient, healthy and sustainable food systems.
Nadia had the pleasure of being part of the jury for the "Start-up: Pitch Competition" which offered entrepreneurs the opportunity to make their start-up shine. Along with nine other judges, Nadia evaluated fifteen innovative companies to choose the three winners for the 2022 edition of SIAL Montreal.
Dominique, director of operations and development at Collectif Récolte and Catherine Lefebvre, administrator on our board of directors, contributed to the panel at the Central Expert Hub entitled “Sustainable development: a hot topic with multiple opportunities”. The discussion brought to light several complex issues calling for the shared responsibility of business, government and consumers to support the global food system in a way that is both healthier and more sustainable.
“Change takes a long time to put in place in systems, and each actor has a role to play in the co-creation of sustainable solutions.” - Nadia Fentiman
