The Issue

To feed the growing global population, food volume will need to increase enormously

Reducing food loss is the ‘low hanging fruit’, to improve food security and help farmers grow out of poverty.

A value chain approach is needed because of the many challenges along the chain

  1. Lack of professional farming practices
  2. Long trading chain with many small players

  3. Aggregation and sales process take long without cold storage

  4. No market- and information link between farmers and buyers
  5. No suitable transport practices
