In Tanzania, almost 50% of the food produced by hard-working small-scale farmers perish before it gets to consumers and markets. Lack of affordable and efficient technologies to prevent such losses, limited post-harvest management training, and poor handling of food products soon after harvest are some of the many reasons for high post-harvest food losses. Recognizing this problem, our mission is to work with local and foreign innovators to reduce post-harvest food losses through low-cost solutions and create economic opportunities for the youth and small-scale farmers. Our Work is based on the belief that preventing food loss and waste has a profound impact on farmers’ livelihoods and is a long-term solution to food shortages.
To develop affordable and efficient post-harvest solutions with a high potential to stop food loss and waste in Tanzania.
To provide training, mentorship, and business development support to local innovators with promising products to reduce food loss and waste in Tanzania.
