Pyragizer&processing

Natural food preservers.

At a local market called Mile 12Nigeria tonnes of fresh tomatoes and watermelons waste because they are not bought.Build a processing centre

Use Case

The pyramid energisers would be used by farmers to preserve harvested produce on the farm. It would also be used by the market traders in elongating the shelf life of their products, keeping them fresh and healthy as well. In our homes, we would use the pyramid energisers in preserving our excess food especially the cooked ones in areas where there is a lack of refrigerators I even electricity on a broader scale. Foods include: fresh eggs, milk, meat, fruits and vegetables, grains etc.

Potential

The processing center along with pyramid energizers will bring about a paradigm shift in the way food is preserved in Africa, right from the farms, to the markets and finally our homes. We won't have to record a high rate of food loss anymore. It would also bring about the assurance that the food is still in its healthy state, having its vital constituents preserved so it goes into the body and nourishes it.

Business Case

Educating the general public on the amount of food wasted and the various channels and through which the waste occurs applicable to them primes them into the need for food preservation. Then we go on to proffer the pyramid energisers as the best and cheapest model for food preservation on farms, on the market and in our homes. Going further, we would make available the pyramid energisers in 3 different sizes with expandable slots which would be sold to farmers, the traders as well as mothers especially in homes.

Objectives:

  1. Reduce waste
  2. Provide more options for healthy food through the processing center at the Mile12 local market in Lagos, Nigeria.
  3. Provide help to sellers of tomatoes and watermelons. Because now, they can have a place to bring their excess food from sale. This helps

Some insights from our define mode

Insight + Insight + Insight
1) Fruit sellers usually sell their produce below profitable margin because they lack the facilities to store the food.
2) Most people prefer their meals fresh and preserved properly rather than see it perish and eventually wasted.
3) Pyramids and pyramid energisers inhibit the entropy of micro organisms that decay food, leaving the food fresh with its vital nutrients intact.

Facts obtained - Global foodies

through research, a lot of findings were recorded about global food issues, we decided to post a few of them here
1) Deforestation is a major issue, causing the loss of whole ecosystems around the globe and the newly recovered land-space still rarely contributing significantly to the food supply.
2) Agriculture accelerates the loss of biodiversity, especially natural habitats of rare species.
3) Over 30% of food produced is wasted along the chain, either rotting in the fields or discarded by apathetic consumers.

Paths of change in undernourishment: raising average consumption versus reducing inequality

I stumbled upon this excerpt that discusses the FAO's perspective towards 2015/2030 world agriculture. And Nigeria was a case study for nourishment as to whether to consider average consumption by reducing inequality. That is, implementing fair distribution.

Hey guys. I found this on the TFFers facebook group. It makes a lot of sense. Watch it. And We'll talk about the lessons we learn and the tools we can pick up to apply to our presentations and our final pitch.

Our Mission

Our mission is to minimize food wastage in Africa through the implementation of good post harvest practices for easy storage and distribution. We aim to increase the percentage population of people who have access to good food in Africa, hereby eradicating extreme hunger from a large world population.

Our Background

We are a passionate team. We were individually passionate friends who have great dreams and goals for Nigerian agriculture. Talking with one another helps strengthen our individual visions and ideas. We always look forward to a future where we would work together towards the accomplishment of great agriculture and food projects. Fortunately for us, though we found out some months into the competition, TFF indeed brings the future we dreamed of. We have our minds on effective ways to minimize food post-harvest losses by utilizing proven systematic methods coupled with modern technology.
