About

 What is food loss and food waste? According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), food loss and food waste refer to the decrease in the mass of food intended for human consumption, throughout all stages of the supply chain. Food is lost or wasted, from the initial production down to the final household consumption. 

Food Loss and Waste Facts: Every year around the globe,1.3 billion tons of food is lost or wasted, that is one third of all food produced for human consumption. 45% of fruit & vegetables are food losses, along with roots and tubers, fruit and vegetables have the highest wastage rates of any food products; almost half of all the fruit and vegetables produced are wasted.

 

45% of roots & tubers food are losses In North America and Oceania alone, 5,814,000 tons of roots and tubers are wasted at the consumption stage alone. Source: FAO Food and Agriculture Organization 2011 Report

 

Risks and challenges

We have 6 years in the food and drink packaging industry. After 4 years of R&D of our product we have a PCT registered in the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) un Geneva, Switzerland, which will give us legal cover and protection to exclusively manufacture and distribute our Freshdy™ bags.
In November 2015, we finished our industrial pilot production of the Freshdy™ bags in two sizes, one small and one large. The larger bag was made for industrial use. Currently we are carrying out tests with potential clients; growers from U.S.A, Canada and Mexico, which export to the U.S, Canada and the E.U. We are also currently looking at how we can modify the bags in order to reduce costs and make them more affordable. The pilot production of Freshdy™ has confirmed that the production of the bags is indeed feasible, we are now looking for solutions and modifications of Freshdy™ to reduce production costs.

However, as with all business activity we are subject to factors beyond our control, such as; new business regulations, disloyal competition, patent infringement and customer bankruptcies.
