Tanmiah Food Company Announces USD$1 Million Prize for Positive Poultry Challenge
JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia, Sept. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Global innovators, entrepreneurs invited to submit sustainable solutions for 
repurposing poultry waste in support of net carbon-negative footprint 

Tanmiah Food Company (TFC) seeks innovative solutions to address the challenges 
posed by the excess amounts of poultry manure generated by their farms. 

With the launch of the Omnipreneurship Awards: Sustainability Branch Grand 
Challenge, TFC, along with service providers NineSigma, aim to seek solutions 
to various hurdles that group companies are facing within their industries. 

The challenge is open to the general public. After submissions are received and 
assessed, 5 organizations will be shortlisted to receive a USD$20,000 prize 
before proceeding to the final round. The winner will proceed to receive a 
USD$1 million award for their solution. TFC are looking for solutions that 
create new processes for converting and using the growing amounts of chicken 
manure towards value-added products for TFC's core business. 

Historically, intensive poultry production has adversely affected the 
environment. The storage and disposal of raw poultry manure has become an issue 
because of the associated air, water and soil pollution: landfilling the 
poultry litter leads to greenhouse gas emissions; poultry manure decomposes 
into ammonia which has adverse effects on the health of birds and farm workers; 
poor manure-management leads to pollution of soil and water with pathogens and 
heavy metals, etc.. Given the sector's rapid growth rate, measures to reduce 
these emissions are needed. Existing technologies remain harmful to the 
environment, contributing to water and air pollution, and a deep carbon 
footprint. TFC's goal is to transform this harmful production process into a 
carbon-negative value chain, which positively contributes to the environment.  

As TFC's CEO, Zulfiqar Hamadani has highlighted "Tanmiah aims to become the 
leading sustainable poultry company in the region, as a net carbon-negative 
poultry producer and to serve as an exemplary circular business model in the
