When a natural disaster occurs, EconoodlE can be a food resque in the middle of the lacking stock.

Potential

EconoodlE is dominantly made from modified cassava flour and small amount of mung bean as well as wheat flour. Cassava is abundantly available accross region in Asia and Africa. This will allow to produce the Econoodle in these two continents. The way of making EconoodlE is just like making an ordinary noodle, therefore, it is very simple. The additional mung bean flour complete the nutrition of the noodle and makes this noodle superior than ordinary noodle. As noodle is very popular in Asia, the superiority of EconoodlE will have a huge demand. This allows small farmers to increase their prosperity and help food security.

Business Case

To promote our noodle, we are going to use the social media and a website. As we can see, number of social media user are keep growing until today, so it will make us easy introduce our product to many people. Furthermore, we are going to use the cassava in such efficient way. We use the root as the basic ingredient of the noodle and the package, and also we used the leaves as the complement. And the last thing, the stem can be use to grow another cassava. The final product will be distributed through minimart and supermarket. Later on, we will cooperate with other food company. With this partnership, not only improve the quality of EcoNoodle, but also ease the distribution of EcoNoodlE. Our main market target is Asia and Africa.

Objectives:

  1. Become an always available food. Cassava is one of the plants that can adapt with hot temperature, so the noodle can always be produced
  2. Become a healthy and affordable instant food. Econoodle made by nutritious ingredients, with no additive, so it is also safe to be consumed
  3. Reduce the trash. Econoodle is packed by cassava starch as a biodegradable final package

Look who is very busy on making mindmap for our second video. Eventhough we don't have a lot of time, we still keep up the spirit on finishing the pitch. Being a freshman doesn't give us a lot of time to finish our work.

Our Mission

Indonesia is one of the country that has abundant resources for the people. Ironically, there are still many people who can not get a decent meal and went to bed with hunger. This encourages Djong Nusantara to create food innovation which aims to provide a contribution to the society. One of the abundant natural resources in Indonesia is cassava (Manihot utilissima). In fact, the workers of cassava, farmers, peeler, processors, gain very small profit from the crop which is not comparable with the work they do. Considering the nutrient content in cassava, we strive to make healthy food product with reasonable prices. Thus, indirectly, these can help increase income of workers of cassava, as well as providing a solution to the proliferation of instant foods that are unhealthy. With the innovations that we will make, we hope this effort can reduce hunger in developing countries, especially Indonesia.

Our Background

Derived from the same high school, we have the same background and interests, namely on science and research. By accepting the challenge of TFF, we will endeavor to try to provide a solution to the complex problems that occur at this time by using the resources of Indonesia that has a lot of potential. We want to be one of the pioneers of Indonesia who joined in solving global problems, namely food safety. The number of unhealthy instant food motivated us to remind the public that instant food has many adverse effects on the body for a long time and can lead to other disease. We do not want people's health, especially Indonesia, is getting worse.
