In 2021, two awards will be given:

Likely themes include: food science, the environmental impact of agriculture, crop or livestock genetics, agro-ecology, soil health, food animal health and production, pest management, supply chain management, food processing, food packaging, food safety, food consumption, human nutrition, food retail/marketing.


The other award will recognize an individual, or group of individuals, who has contributed to improved nutritional health and/or food security, with a focus on strengthening disadvantaged communities. Likely themes include: food sovereignty, food production, food distribution/access, food insecurity, community development and governance, household nutrition, urban poverty, traditional food systems, socioeconomic policy, empowerment of under-served communities, food and nutrition literacy.



  • Citizens of any country are eligible for nomination, with no restrictions on gender, race, religion, creed or residency.
  • Nominations may come from private companies, academic institutions, governmental units, charitable foundations, and not-for-profit organisations. In the case of multiple nominations from a single organization, only the one with the latest date will be accepted.



We reserve the right to make changes to process as necessary.
We will make any changes transparently and without giving advantage to any nominees or groups.
Our expected timeline is as follows:
  • December 1, 2020: Open nominations
  • 28th February 2021: Nominations close
  • March 2021: Administrative checks, then eligible nominations to Adjudicators for consideration
  • April 2021: Adjudication Panel meets to select winners
  • Late Spring 2021: Winners contacted; travel arrangements made



The Arrell Food Prizes come with the following terms:

  • Each of the two prizes will be worth $125,000 CAD comprising a $100,000 cash award for the
    personal use of recipients and up to $25,000 per award for travel and accommodation of the
    recipients, administered by the Arrell Food Institute at the University of Guelph.
  • An award citation and a commemorative item will also be presented.
  • Recipients are expected to participate in a program of events. In particular, award recipients may
    be asked to attend the next Arrell Food Summit. There may also be other engagements organized,
    subject to mutual availability.
  • Given the current global pandemic a determination on the travel and accommodation component
    of the award will be made some time during the 2021 calendar year.
