Best Small Business: Good Food for All UN winners

Meet the 50 Best Small Business Winners Providing “Good Food for All”

Fifty small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) around the world have been announced as the Best Small Businesses of the “Good Food for All” competition, held in conjunction with the UN Food Systems Summit.

Selected from nearly 2,000 applications from 135 countries, the 50 winners all showcase inspiring, diverse, and impactful solutions in improving access to healthy, sustainable food.

Each winner was celebrated as a “Best Small Business: Good Food for All” and shared US$100,000 in cash prizes. At the UNFSS event to announce the winners, this short video was shared to showcase their stories and highlight SMEs’ vital work in sustainably nourishing families all around the world.

 

Each winner was selected for how their business contributes to healthier, more sustainable and equitable food for the communities they serve; the strength of their vision for the future; and how well they communicate the current and future impact of their business.

These food SMEs are quiet revolutionaries. Their founders embody an ascending worldwide cohort of passionate, values-driven, innovative food entrepreneurs. Half are youth and nearly half are women. Winners come from a total of 42 countries from Europe & Central Asia (10); Africa & Middle East (13); East Asia & Pacific (10); South Asia (8); and North and Latin America (9).

Despite their importance to the future of food, small businesses are too rarely heard on the international stage. This competition, which included a survey, captured their ambition and needs. These are presented in a report, “A Small Business Agenda for the UN Food Systems Summit”, that calls for the world to rally behind SMEs as the vanguard of a food revolution.

With a conducive business environment, positive incentives, and greater influence, SMEs can deliver a more nourishing, sustainable, equitable and resilient food system. As part of the announcement ceremony held in conjunction with the UN Food Systems Pre-Summit, other small businesses around the world will be encouraged to join in the call to do their part in this decade of action by signing a pledge.
