Projekt Mindre Madspild med Tirstrup Idrætsefterskole

Projekt Mindre Madspild er et 6 måneders forløb, som har kørt i samarbejde med udvalgte ambassadørefterskoler. Den første skole til at gennemføre projektet var Brøruphus Efterskole i efteråret 2016, mens Tirstrup Idrætsefterskole fulgte trop i foråret 2017.

I perioden har vi undersøgt, i hvilken grad leg og læring har haft en madspildsreducerende effekt på Tirstrup Idrætsefterskole.

Som et vigtigt værktøj til at reducere madspild indførte vi brætspillet Food Spinner. Brætspillet blev introduceret for eleverne i 2. halvdel af projektet for at kunne evaluere på, om spillet har skabt en øget viden og bevidsthed omkring mad blandt den yngre målgruppe. Projektets resultater er baserede på:

  • Måling af madspild i kilogram
  • Spørgeskema til eleverne omkring mad (start- og sluttest)
  • Observationer af adfærd
  • Samtaler med elever, lærer og køkkenpersonale.

Cleantech Open, San Francisco

In November we received an unexpected and amazing message. Venture Cup wanted to send our company to Silicon Valley, San Francisco, to represent Denmark and participate in the annual event: Cleantech Open. The global event find and fund the most promising cleantech startups in the world. We could not believe what an amazing opportunity this was!

We spend the following week preparing, packed our bags and jumped on plane to San Francisco. During the 3-day event we got to pitch in front of investors and network with influential people who also want to make the world a bit greener. We exchanged a lot of business cards with people that want to help us with product development, networking and sharing knowledge about the American food waste industry.

Furthermore we met with the Innovation Centre Denmark, who also wanted to help us develop our company. All in all, the trip resulted in many new contacts and opened a lot of possibilities for us in the future.

Venture Cup Startup finals

We were ecstatic and honored to be chosen as a finalist team in Venture Cup’s Startup competition 2015. Being a finalist meant that we had to go through a 2-day pitch camp where we practiced body language, rhetorics, selling points and other pitch techniques. Talented business experts and keynote speakers also taught us more about business plans and financial structures. Overall the two days on the camp have been fun and useful and we have met a lot of other talented start up businesses.

The actual finals took place on the 19th of June 2015. We made a 4 minute pitch in front of six judges from the cleantech market. After pitching our idea and business plan we networked and celebrated Venture Cup’s 15th anniversary.
Unfortunately we did not win the competition, but the experience and the contacts we established was priceless.

Testing on Bjergsnæs Boarding School

Food Spinner is an entertaining board game centered around food waste. To test the effect of the game we have visited Bjergsnæs Boarding School in Viborg, Denmark. Food Spinner is still a prototype but we received positive and useful feedback from the pupils. Much of the communication among the pupils showed signs of learning and “aha experiences” in relation to food waste.

Some of the quotes were:

– “Whaaaat?!”

– “That’s a lot of food waste during christmas!”

– “You actually learn some stuff and it gets you thinking”

– “It’s funny to learn something that your “brainy” parents don’t know, so you can teach them something”

– “We play a little longer” … “Can we just play untill 7.30?” … “Just one more round”

Ready to change the world!

Hello, and welcome to our journey and fight against food waste!

After months of working with the food waste industry, we have developed the board game; Food Spinner. The game is developed with teachers, boarding schools, game manufacturers and other experts. The game is educating for the young generation because they will learn about the consequences of food waste and how to avoid it. Furthermore, the game takes three different learning styles into consideration to challenge the children in different ways.

Before we start production, we will continue to develop the game and test it on schools. We believe in a co-creating process in order to make the game valuable to the end-consumer. Hopefully we can start production soon and contribute to the reduction of food waste.
