Focus on the Ecotrophélia competition
The Ecotrophélia competition is the first student prize for food innovation. EBI has been an active change player by entering this competition every year for the past 10 years. EBI was awarded prizes in the last three competitions with the Sel à Saison, Poé’ile and Savouchoc projects.
Alice Rebours, class of 2016, took part in the Ecotrophélia competition:
“I was awarded a prize with the Sel à Saison project. The Ecotrophélia competition gives us the opportunity to carry out a project which includes company creation. To win the prize, we had to carry out market analysis, design an innovative product, develop the cheapest and most ecological manufacturing process and see how this project could be applied at a pilot scale. This allowed us to have an overall and realistic view of what setting up a company involves. It was very instructive, gave us a good professional grounding and is a “must do” for any future entrepreneur"
