Climate is changing. Food and Agriculture must too.

On World Food Day 2018 we asked ourselves the question: How do we take action for SDG goal 1: Zero hunger? The world’s population is growing and demand for food is rising, especially in high growth 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. Since 2013, FoodTechIndonesia is actively improving and strengthening the local poultry value chain.
