Coles launched the $50 million Nurture Fund in April 2015 to help Australian food and liquor producers innovate and grow.
Since then, we have offered more than $30 million in financial support to more than 90 small and medium sized businesses.
From Australia’s first quinoa processing facility, to fence posts made from recycled plastic, and a state of the art factory to grow grass indoors, the Coles Nurture Fund is helping Aussie producers bring their big ideas to life.
Australian producers can apply for a grant of up to $500,000 to help them develop new market-leading products, technologies and processes.
Round Ten of the Coles Nurture Fund is now closed. Round 11 will open in January 2023.
