The world population is projected at 9.1 billion by 2050 and studies show the need for a 70% increase in food demand. However, studies conducted by the World Bank in collaboration with the FAO estimate global food losses at 1.3 billion tonnes / year. However, in the Kinshasa markets, agricultural products are rotting in large quantities, either because of an overabundance linked to low purchasing power, or because of the lack of adequate conservation techniques and the lack of work equipment. .
Educate small farmers on processing techniques in case of overabundance in the market. For example, the operators of the sector of the most vulnerable products, easily and quickly perishable when they are harvested (tomato, pepper, pepper ...), they will learn how to make the transformation (in hygienic conditions) of the aforementioned products. This will allow them to keep their products for a long time and put them back on the market at any time of the year at a reasonable price.
