Criteria for being awarded is, that every project submitted, needs to pursue at least one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The SDGs being an approach, which was determined by the United Nations in 2015, to face global challenges together as an international community. 17 sustainable development goal were declared, which are supposed to be achieved by 2030. Eventhough they were only ratified by government representatives, but private economy plays an important role in the implementation.
Conflictfood especially faces and fights problems, regarding SDG 12 – Responsible Consumption and Production.
Consumption is always political and we point that out. With our products you can consume consciously, ethically and do good at the same time. Unlike the big players in the food sector, that dictate prices, accept child labor, privatize water, destroy the environment and local market structures, Conflictfood follows a holistic approach.

We are truly delighted about this award, which sponsors us in order to continue and develop our projects.
What will we do with the prize money? – Well, we will continue where we stopped! Because there is so much more to do!
We are already planning our next trip to Afghanistan.
We are about to pack our bags and are very happy that we have a secure financing for our trip. This allows us to meet more farmers in Afghanistan and look for new partners we can cooperate with. Undoubtedly, there will be new culinary specials in our shop soon.
What a great honor to win the iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE 2018! We are very thankful and happy that iF is joining Conflictfood’s journey – literally: the support we have received helps us to make this year’ s trip to farmers in Afghanistan. Through fair and direct trade we can open up new markets to them and tackle poverty at the root. Thank you, iF!
