Save more before you produce more. Focusing on ‘producing’ more food instead of ‘saving’ more is only contributing to further degradation of environment. Preventing the wastage of food (which currently is 40%-50%) worldwide, is our goal. Once this problem is solved, we can focus upon production of more food, only if needed at all by then. The solution is to stop the wastage of food by proper monitoring and proper management during storage and transportation, the stage during which 90% of the food spoilage occurs. Our mission is to create a system with Advance NFC (Near Field Communication) labels, capable of reading bio-data from food lots and converting it into useful data for better management of lots during transportation and storage, the crucial stage where most of the food is wasted. Basically, we want to create a NFC based 'food trace-ability and management system' to prevent food loss.
We have Amritanshu as the hustler, whose head is an inventory full of new ideas to be explored. He is the person with the reality distortion field, who can run experiments. He has a knack for seeing the world in ultraviolet & infrared while the rest of the world can only see the rainbows. Prakhar is the computer geek, who puts these ideas onto his canvas, with his medium of expression being Computer Coding. He is like the ink to a pen, very crucial for functioning, whether it’s a part time Python development or playing around with his Internet of Things devices. He is generally focused on getting things done and the operational side of the business. Understands the whole picture A-Z, but focused on A-B. Vijeyata, the communicator, she has an awesome understanding of the industry and product. She is the one who ties everything together and evangelizes the vision to everyone and everyone. She is the person usually thinking of the wild ideas to get things moving. For an idea to grow, members of the team members should have complementary skills, rather than similar attributes. Teams that can learn, adapt and grow together will have much higher likelihood of finding success than those who just seem like perfect matches on paper. We are crazy entrepreneurs, who are working with NFC currently, and we want to change the world into a better place. We want to bring the power of technology to food security because in today's world, whatever might be the problem, technology has a solution. We are dedicated in building a system that would prevent food wastage. We are people with engineering and science background and know how to get things done. We are not doing this because we think it is a social welfare project, would be a feather in our cap, or a great addition to our resume, we are doing this because we understand how big the global hunger problem is and finding a solution to it is of utmost importance.
