Innovate UK

This Open Innovation challenge, delivered by the Global Alliance Africa project, is supporting Unilever Kenya to find innovative ways to process millet (and other grains) to produce convenient, fortified consumer products. Due to this nutritious grains’ physical variability, processing can be inefficient, and there are challenges in producing preferable formats. Unilever Kenya is seeking innovative solutions beyond commonly used/existing technologies to produce millet food products with consumer appeal and zero waste, using circular economy principles. They are also open to wider use cases involving other grains.
