Rescue and distribute healthy food among community kitchens and families in low income communities


PROBLEM

More than 820 million people in the world suffer from severe food insecurity and another 1.3 billion people have experienced food insecurity at moderate levels, while ⅓ of the food produced in the world is wasted despite being edible. Malnutrition is directly associated with chronic diseases, as well as intellectual and emotional underperformance.

SOLUTION

Making healthy food affordable for low income people, by creating a new value chain for the base of the pyramid. Nilus has developed a technology to rescue food products that are at risk of being wasted from producers and retailers, and distribute them at 30% to 50% discount among community kitchens and families in low income communities"
