We aim to ensure food security by creating a better and more sustainable linkage between consumers and farmers to ensure healthy and safe food.
We are 5 young and talented MSc in rural development from France, Vietnam, Lebanon and Ukraine. Our mission in life is to help people over the world to have enough of healthy and safe food to eat. We are studying in an international environment where we have global views on food security. From 1963 to 2005, we witnessed that the growth in food production has been greater than population growth (World Resources Institute). Over the world, food is available enough for at least 2.15 kg of food per person per day. The problem is that many people are too poor to buy food. Additionally, non-poor people are afraid of eating unsafe food because of unhealthy compounds that are used in food production to gain more benefits. Therefore, we come up with a question: how can we help the too poor people access to available food to ensure that every people have enough healthy and safety food? And how people can eat the healthy and safety food to eat? We believe that one of the solutions to help poor farmers climb out of their poverty is to link them with consumers in a sustainable way. By this way, poor farmers can understand consumers’ demand to make their business plan. Consumers also can have safe food by connecting with farmers who produce food. To connect poor farmers who can produce safe food with demanding consumers, it is necessary to have a platform when farmers and consumers can connect and support each other. We want to develop an app to connect poor farmers with consumers to have more interaction and go towards a common goal that everyone in the chain can access healthy and safe food. Positive stories will be spread over the world. As a result, all worldwide actors in the food chain will be ensured healthy and safe food. Participating in this challenge is a great opportunity to connect with ambitious people over the goal to solve the issue of food security in a comprehensive approach. We have ideas and networks to strengthen our plan for a better worldwide food system.
