A BROKEN FOOD SYSTEM
- Tonight in South Africa more than 8 million people will go to sleep HUNGRY
- FOOD WASTE varies between 40-60 % from its point of production to the point of sale across peri-urban and rural areas of Africa.
- An estimated 400 000 emerging farmers in South Africa alone are excluded from formal food supply chains perpetuating a cycle of poverty. Across Africa this figure is upwards of 400 Million people.
- A lack of affordable cold storage solutions across the food chain
- A lack of traceability and accreditation ready, affordable infrastructure is a barrier for emerging farmers to sustainably supply into formal food chains across Africa
- A piece-meal and incomplete understanding of how each actor in the food chain impacts on the overall food system acts as a barrier to a sustainable path out of poverty for small and emerging farmers
- A holistic system based development approach towards strengthening the Food System yields greater benefits than the sum of the individual parts of production, processing or retail and ensures scalability from community to national levels
- The selective use of affordable, innovative technology can accelerate more resilient community embedded food systems creating local jobs across the agri value chain
