Scientist on mission to save dairy waste

By Dairy News

A scientist with a plan to save dairy waste has won the top cash prize in a competition held as part of the inaugural evokeAG event in February.

About 1200 international delegates heard the presentation, where 13 finalists competed for total cash pool of $25000, in front of an expert panel of judges.

Mathew Jones from CertusBio is a step closer to realising his dream of saving billions of kilos of dairy waste after taking home the top cash prize of $20 000 in the Investment Ready stream.

The Christchurch-based innovator was one of five finalists from Israel, New Zealand and Australia in the agtech sector.
