The International Nut and Dried Fruit Council Foundation (INC) calls for Promotion and Dissemination Projects aimed at building consumer demand for nuts and dried fruits worldwide. INC will fund projects aimed at increasing the use and consumption of nuts and dried fruits, whenever such projects are beyond the scope of the INC, i.e. projects that the INC cannot fit within its regular activity, for instance due to language or geographic challenges.
The Call is open for projects from public and private institutions, as well as not-for-profit organizations, and encourages cooperative projects implying INC members. Special emphasis will be placed upon multi-collaborative projects and cooperation with industry-related partners.
Up to 50,000 EUR is available for the 2018 Grant.
Since the INC represents 17 nuts and dried fruits (namely almonds, apricot kernels, Amazonia (Brazil) nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios, walnuts, peanuts, dates, dried apricots, dried cranberries, dried figs, dried grapes and prunes) the Call will only accept projects that involve at least 3 nuts and/or dried fruits
- Activities that provide markets and consumers with information on the properties and qualities of nuts and dried fruits (e.g. marketing campaigns at points-of-sale, education campaigns at schools).
- Market research and activities aimed at ensuring that buyers, consumers and health professionals know about nuts and dried fruits and their many positive features (e.g. participation in specialized events).
INC will also prioritize project proposals aimed at disseminating the outcomes of the scientific findings that come from INC-funded research (annual Call for Research Projects) or new scientific findings that have been published in high-impact scientific journals.

"Nuts for Gifts” Global Dissemination Program
The INC launched “Nuts for Gifts” to promote nuts and dried fruits worldwide under a new concept: nuts and dried fruits as a top-of-mind gift, which is also aligned with the DIY trend.
The “Nuts for Gifts” Global Dissemination Program can be shared and disseminated through its ToolBox Kit. INC members and industry organizations can download it at the Members Area of the website nutsforgifts.org
