Emissions from food losses from farm to retailers represent 3.7% of all Green House Gasses (GHG). 30-50% of food produced in Africa is lost, making food systems the second biggest contributor of Green House Gasses. This is astonishing when put into perspective that it is double the impact of aviation, or put another way, if food losses were a country, it would be the third biggest emitter in the world after the US and China. Beyond the reduced emissions from mitigated food loss, InspiraFarms uses designs, engineering, and technology to lower energy consumption, all for the overall resiliency against physical climate risks.
Our key focus area is utilising good post-harvest management and cold chain to generate millions of high-quality rural jobs along the chain. The net improvements in such value chains in local communities are resulting in reductions in waste that are then incommensurable.
