According to the FAOIn Africa, 100 million tons of crops are lost every year, which would be enough to feed 300 million people in the world !
The highest loss rate is in fruits and vegetables (40%), especially during peak harvests.
At the same time, African countries import several billion dollars worth of food every year.
All these phenomena penalize local agri-food chains, thus posing a challenge in terms of food resilience and trade balance.
This recurring problem is due to several concomitant phenomena
Our solution is based on our fruit and vegetable processing mini-factories close to the fields, in combination with our partnerships promoting a virtuous ecosystem for rural communities. The following benefits can be expected from its implementation:
Our offer for communities and NGOs
We propose to communities and NGOs a public-private-NGO partnership in which the acquisition of the mini-factories is ensured by the community or the NGO, and the operational management of the mini-factories is ensured by us. To do so, ASFOOD recruits and trains personnel in the country. This management can be done in partnership with national private operators.
