The C&A Foundation has chosen eight winners for its ‘Meaningful Innovation for Family Farming – Sustainable Cotton Challenge’ programme in Brazil, which was launched late last year to support innovation among smallholder organic cotton farmers. The winning proposals were chosen from more than 40 applications and selected by a panel of 22 judges, made up of specialists from research companies, international organisations, NGOs and government agencies. They will each receive €100,000 from the programme and begin implementation this month.
