Keenan Alltech Farming Innovation Award

The Keenan Alltech Farming Innovation Award recognises excellence journalism about innovative approaches to farming challenges.

“Continuous innovation is the lifeblood of any company – speed to market is king,” explains Keenan chief executive Robert Walker.

New innovation must be brought to market quickly to gain first mover advantage and this award thus has broad scope in terms of its subject matter.

“Companies can no longer rely on trademarks and patents to protect their intellectual property."

"Innovation should be interwoven into a company’s culture, no matter how big or small, with Innovation the natural result of a team’s curiosity and excitement.”
