Food & Business Knowledge Platform – Highlights 2016

The Food & Business Knowledge Platform (F&BKP or the Platform) has published its highlights of 2016. This third year of the Platform was marked by several important achievements: interaction and dynamics within the Platform intensified; the requests for support to knowledge trajectories increased; more traffic was visible on the website; and approximately 60 research consortia are now up and running.

Ensuring Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) for the increasing global population poses an enormous challenge to governments, NGOs, researchers, and the private sector.

Agri-tech startup Zazu, a digital marketplace connecting farmers to buyers

https://www.zazuafrica.com/

At 4am in a public transport ‘kombi’, our founder Perseus witnessed an 80 year old lady carrying produce to market. She knew that if she didn’t wake up in time, or walk the 1 1⁄2hour to the road, she would miss the best buyers from the market. But she had a phone to communicate with her grandchildren, about her journey. So he came up with an idea - markets that come to you. Irregardless of location.

What started out as a way to pass market prices to smallholder farmers in emerging markets, is now changing the lives of many farmers across the world.

Zazu helps everyone make competitive decisions on buying and selling. Zazu will continue to simplify the value chain with one of the planet’s most valuable resources: food.

AgriTech innovation breaks down barriers for African cassava farmers

Although cassava is an important part of the diet for 800 million people in Africa, shortage of equipment for processing has meant production has been unable to increase.

To meet this need a social impact business, Aspuna Group, is developing a cassava processing facility in The Gambia to convert the raw material into starch and reduce unemployment.
