In April 2015, Coles Supermarkets established the Coles Nurture Fund to help small to medium Australian producers, farmers and growers to innovate and grow their business.
Since its establishment, more than $33 million has been awarded to 100 Australian producers via the Coles Nurture Fund to help fund the development of new innovative products, technologies and processes that improve sustainability, enhance animal welfare standards, reduce food waste and divert waste from landfill.
Round 12 of the Fund is currently open for small and medium sized Australian producers. Businesses can apply for a grant of up to $500,000 to help them develop unique products, technologies and processes that not only drive innovation, but also sustainability and growth.
Businesses don’t need to be a supplier to Coles to apply. Funding applications will be considered on competitive, merit-based principles.
Applications close 23 February, 2024.
