The projects we have supported

It is difficult to list all the projects supported by the Foundation since 2004. This is why we have provided a selection of the most recent projects in France and abroad. We would like to particularly congratulate all the actors in the field, whether they have or have not received awards from the Foundation, for their extraordinary commitment.

Over 200 projects supported

Since 2004, more than 500,000 people have benefited from our funding activities in nearly 20 countries! It is an effective, resilient and much appreciated support system, but one that has now moved on.

Indeed, in 2019, the Louis Bonduelle Foundation’s call for projects marked a first shift towards support for participatory research. Our objective? To build connections, and to contribute to the funding of international projects. How? By improving the positive impact of plant-based food in the process of moving towards sustainable eating habits through the involvement of the academic research community and citizens.

What is the benefit of a participatory funding programme for the Foundation?

In 2021, the scope of our actions has evolved to be better aligned with the needs of communities, thanks to a partnership with Ulule. This participatory incubator builds partnerships with companies that take concrete action to achieve a positive social impact, and connects them with enthusiastic voluntary organisations.
