Our Mission

Our mission is to reintroduce the culture of consumption of natives plants, that are underestimated but could be a solution to World Hunger, by creating a free knowledge base and forming a network of suppliers and consumers that will generate a creative and social economy.

Our Background

We are a group of people who want to make a difference in the world, starting by building a project that can help people to improve life quality and at the same time help others the same way we do. We see the TFF Challenge as a way to share our idea with the world. Our team is comprised by friends of distinct areas of knowledge such as computer science, biology, marketing and financial, but with the same wish: make a better world for us and for the future generations.
