Pitch map

We've now pitched over 50 restaurants around Lagos, interviewing their owners and general managers.

In the process, we've heard incredible entrepreneurial stories. From a vegan who after 11 years and three failed attempts managed to kick-start a vegetarian movement in his hometown, to an aspiring forensic scientist who went from a restaurant clerk internship to managing one of the top restaurants in the city, these meetings will stay with us as we continue on our journey.

The feedback so far has been incredibly positive, and we continue learning more about the hospitality industry and food waste. We've further validated the sctope of the problem, with some restaurants throwing up to 100 portions of food a day in the bin.

Over the next several days, we will continue onboarding partners for our soft launch later in the summer, and train a small team of volunteer salesepeople we've met on the trip.

Kingsley is a talented software engineer who has worked with us remotely for several years, Skyping occasionally, but communicating mainly by text.

When we met Kingsley in person in his home town of Lagos, it was like reconnecting with an old friend, and we started sharing stories and laughs immediately.

He was kind enough to welcome him into his home to meet his wife and child... only to reveal to us a very funny story... Around two years ago, when we hired Kingsley, we invited him to a 2nd round technical interview, asking him if the date and time we proposed was suitable. He was so keen to make a good impression, that he didn't bother to mention that that particular day was his wedding day, and he Skyped us between his service and evening reception!

We were told his wife still doesn't know, so we kept this story to ourselves as we enjoyed a delicious home-cooked meal with his family!

Infeednity Update: We Famous

Couple weeks ago, I went to Germany to share my publication about food waste in Depok. It was nice to hear people's thoughts and ideas about further implementation about food waste in Depok. "The publications will be published internationally on ssrn.com around a month after the conference", said the committee.

Super Shroom

The Last Push

Preparing the submission contents for TFF 2018 was an absolute hectic experience. All of the team members being university students we had to put in extra effort managing the time for TFF. Quite a few classes had to be sacrificed along with attendance marks to get a lot of the work done.With all the members being from different years, we had classes at different time schedules. Time tables had to juggled in between classes to manage day to day activities. There were some tasks we left for the day before submission and that almost made us miss the deadline. All our submission contents were revised and ready.Just some mini edits for the concept video were left. Suddenly we started facing some unexpected technical difficulties with the audio for the concept video in the last few hours.Including the video narrator, half of the team members were attending their exams at the university at that time. There was a mild panic building into a massive one. But the issues were managed nevertheless and we were able to upload the video minutes before the deadline breathing a sigh of relief. I'd say the tension and rush made it an experience to remember better.

Super Shroom

What is Super Shroom?

Super Shroom is a year-round micro-farming model of Oyster Mushroom that addresses malnutrition in remote and underprivileged areas in South Asia.

The cultivation process is inexpensive and can be easily done at home. Malnourished families in targeted areas will be provided free cultivation training and spawns, which they will grow, consume and sell back to Super Shroom, hence transforming their lives with a supercharged diet and surplus income.

The sold yield will be utilised to fulfill the growing demand in market and generate revenue for sustainability.

An easy year-round micro-farming model of Oyster Mushroom ensuring nutrition & surplus income for malnourished populations in remote areas.

Super Shroom

Micro-Farming Model of Oyster Mushroom

Malnutrition is responsible for causing health hazards, weaker immunities, resulting in stunted growth to death, especially among women and children residing in rural remote areas.

If these malnourished and underprivileged families had access to a super food while securing some surplus income for themselves it would mean partially solving two core aspects of food security and breaking the poverty cycle.

Oyster Mushroom is a superfood having high protein content close to that of any meat, nutritional content higher than that of most vegetables with an extraordinarily high number of disease prevention capabilities.

Our solution is a micro farming model of oyster mushrooms designed to be a self-sustaining social business conducted in the following steps.

Step 1- Installation of a super shroom hub in the chosen rural area .This whole model functions centering the Hub.

Step 2- Commercial Spawns will be produced from the mother culture in the hub.

Step 3- We gather interested individuals willing to be a part of the Super Easy Super Shroom farming model.

Step 4- Free cultivation training and spawns will be distributed from the hubs to the cultivators

Step 5 - In 7-10 days the spawns will give yield

Step 6 - The families will consume half the yield ensuring nutrition for themselves and Super Shroom hubs will purchase back the other 50% of the yield from them.

Step 7- Back in the hub, the mushrooms will be processed & packaged maintaining proper hygiene.

Step 8 - The produce will be distributed in the local markets, super shops, restaurants and hotels where mushrooms are a growing demand now.

Step 9 - With the revenue generating from the sales, it will work as a subsidy for the spawns given to the cultivators at free of cost.

When one hub reaches break even,installation of a new one will initiate in another area following the same process. Thus scaling our business from Bangladesh to South Asia.

Super Shroom aims to Supercharge Everyone’s Diet with Oyster Mushroom,while reducing poverty among the underprivileged malnourished population of South Asia,transforming their lives into a better and healthy one.

Super Shroom, Supercharge Your Diet.
