About my venture

E_commerce

10 million tons of food go to waste in south Africa every year , my idea is based on finding a way to reduce food waste by selling the fresh food that was supposed to be thrown away at lower price, the idea is to also fix the broken supply chain, so that we make sure South Africa's afford to buy food. The idea is to aslo create an online platform where buyers will order groceries and it can be delivered at lower price.

Countries of operation: South Africa
