The Research Award over time

Since 2006, The Louis Bonduelle Foundation has rewarded annually a young researcher for his/her research in food science.

From the history of food to food production, followed by the impact of food on health, the submitted research topics are very varied and treat food as a whole.

The applications come from all over the world, which makes it possible to highlight the originality and plurality of each of these countries.

The winners of the Louis Bonduelle Research Award benefit from acknowledgment for the quality of their work and receive 10,000 € to support their research project.
