Requested Deliverables:

We are looking for innovative ways or new formats to deliver onion and garlic to customers. Submit an idea for a new onion or garlic-based food product that would utilize our dried onion or garlic as one of the top components.  Please include:

  • A written description of the product.
  • A picture or artistic rendering of the concept
  • Other ingredients that would be needed in addition to onion or garlic


  • We are not interested in application ideas, for example Roasted Garlic Potato Chip Seasoning or Chipotle Onion Salsa
  • Ideas should be a new format of delivering onion and garlic to the market place that will allow us to leverage our expertise and vertical integration in onion and garlic.  
  • Ideally the intended market would be North America, but Olam is a global company so ideas could be for another market.
  • The idea can be either a consumer end-product for retail or for a food service/restaurant application. 

    Submissions will be graded on the following criteria:
