On World Food Day 2016 we asked ourselves the question: “How do we take action for #zerohunger?” The world’s population is growing and demand for food is rising, especially in emerging markets in Asia and East-Africa. Together with our clients, Larive implements several food security projects.
1. Kenya – Aquaculture
Fish is an efficient and healthy source of protein that can feed the growing population. FoodTechAfrica aims to provide healthy fish for the Kenyan population by locally developing a sustainable aquaculture sector.
2. India – Reducing Food waste
Every year, 40% of the fruits and vegetables produced in India are wasted due to the poor transport and storage facilities. FoodTechIndia is reducing food waste, by developing the cold chain and assisting greenhouse farmers to increase vegetables production.
3. Indonesia – Poultry
Poultry is an efficient form of livestock in terms of water usage, feed conversion and greenhouse gas emissions. To fulfil the growing demand for poultry in Indonesia, productivity has to increase significantly by introducing improved (knowledge-intensive) production systems and share Dutch expertise. FoodTechIndonesia is actively improving and strengthening the local poultry value chain.
Larive International initiates and coordinates consortia of innovative Dutch companies and knowledge institutes, active in the agro and food sector, with market entry and growth potential in the emerging markets. The consortia offer integral solutions responding to the increasing local demand for safe food and contributing to local private sector development.
