Tanmiah Food Company (TFC) seeks innovative solutions to address the challenges posed by the excess amounts of poultry manure generated by their farms.

With the launch of the Omnipreneurship Awards: Sustainability Branch Grand Challenge, TFC, along with service providers NineSigma, will seek solutions to various hurdles that group companies are facing within their industries.

The challenge is open to the general public. After submissions are received and assessed, five organizations will be shortlisted to receive a $20,000 prize before proceeding to the final round. The winner will receive a $1-million award for their solution. TFC are looking for new processes for converting and using their chicken manure towards value-added products for TFC’s core business.

The storage and disposal of raw poultry manure has become an issue because of the associated air, water and soil pollution. Given the sector’s rapid growth rate, measures to reduce these emissions are needed. Existing technologies remain harmful to the environment, contributing to water and air pollution and a deep carbon footprint. TFC’s goal is to transform this production process into a carbon-negative value chain.
