The Next Big Food Entrepreneur Competition is Back!

Could you be the next big food entrepreneur?



The Mercato Centrale group announced that The Next Big Food Entrepreneur (NBFE) competition is now accepting applications. The three-phase event will pool together a group of aspiring food entrepreneurs with unique and sustainable product offerings, test them out in the market, and award them with a start-up capital of P100,000.

Mercato Centrale co-founders Anton Diaz and RJ Ledesma have a track record of identifying successful food entrepreneurs such as Mochiko, Manang’s Chicken, and Merry Moo, businesses who got their start at the food market in Bonifacio Global City and have gone to put up brick-and-mortar outposts or have expanded their food businesses. The competition aims to give aspiring entrepreneurs the same opportunity and pave the way to their success.

Now on its 4th year, The Next Big Food Entrepreneur is in search for the next winner of P100,000 in start-up capital, 6 months rent-free stay at a Mercato Centrale market, mentoring sessions with Mercato Centrale’s Anton Diaz and RJ Ledesma, and a special feature on Entrepreneur Magazine.

Application deadline on November 8. For more information, visit  Mercato Centrale’s Facebook page to download the application form and learn more about the competition.
