Tyson Foods’ venture capital arm is launching a new initiative to gather ideas from innovators and entrepreneurs to help the meat giant reach its sustainability goals and create a more transparent food system.

Tyson Ventures said it is looking for solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and food waste, and to address animal welfare, regenerative agriculture and soil health, water management and sustainable packaging. It will be holding a virtual Demo Day pitch event on July 11, and startups can apply on Tyson’s website until May 15.

Through its venture capital arm, Tyson is taking an accelerator approach to the complex issue of improving the sustainability of manufacturing meat products by allowing outsiders with expertise to help.
