Coles Nurture Fund

Coles launched the $50 million Nurture Fund in April 2015 to help small and medium sized businesses innovate and grow.

Since then, we have offered more than $21 million in financial support to over 50 Australian food and liquor producers.

From Australia’s first quinoa processing facility, to chickpea tofu, to home grown garlic and to Australian first prawn farming technology, the Coles Nurture Fund is helping Aussie producers bring their big ideas to life.

Round Eight of the Coles Nurture Fund is now open and will close on Friday, 20 March 2020 at 5pm AEST.

Small and medium sized businesses can apply for a grant of up to $500,000 to help them develop new market-leading products, technologies and processes.

Farmers and producers affected by bushfires or drought can also apply for a grant to help renew their business.
