A call for candidates launched to start-ups with projects aimed to improve health

Nutrition has become an issue of growing concern in the onset of certain pathologies (obesity, cardiovascular diseases, cancers, etc.) and one of the key factor of good health. On that basis, improving food has become a public health issue in France.

Nonetheless, eating habits have changed little despite measures implemented within the framework of the French national health nutrition program aimed to improve the health condition of the population: only 42% of adults and 23% of children consume at least 5 fruits and vegetables per day.

As the leading French social caterer, Elior is committed to offering meals that are ever more gourmet, more respectful of the environment and especially good for health. This is why Elior has partnered with the Prevent2Care Lab* to develop new initiatives in the field of nutrition to improve health with the launch of a brand new incubation program, the “Nutrition Lab”. 

The nutrition Lab – operated by INCO with the support of the Prevent2Care Lab long-standing partners, the Ramsay Santé Foundation and Pfizer Innovation France endowment fund - is a free support program dedicated to players who innovate for better health prevention in the field of nutrition and food. 

On December 1st, Elior and the Prevent2Care Lab launched a call to recruit the first batch of start-ups to take part in the Nutrition Lab program and will be receiving applications until December 31, 2020. The 5 start-ups selected at the end of this call for candidates will receive support for a period of 6 months and benefit from the INCO ecosystem (40 countries, 500 start-ups), as well as from Elior's food and tech expertise.

* The Prevent2Care Lab is a non-profit incubation program that offers free guidance and support to entrepreneurs and associations in the field of health prevention.
