Meet the EAT Farm Fresh program: Incentivizing local food systems by empowering Mozambican women to grow nutritional produce for their families and communities
Unhealthy diets have become a primary source of poor health around the world, with glaring disparities between rich and poor. A shocking 690 million people are chronically hungry, while one-third of what we produce is never eaten. Our diets have also become the leading contributor to global environmental degradation. Redesigning food is a unique and powerful opportunity to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 and to involve people from around the globe in solving some of our greatest challenges.
At BI Norwegian Business School‘s 2021 Global Case Competition, my team took on this unique and powerful opportunity to tackle food systems with out-of-the-box thinking. Our solution, the EAT Farm Fresh program is a large-scale, innovative solution that paves the way for a healthier and more sustainable food system. Over the course of 2 weeks, we developed our initial idea into a Scalable, Actionable, and Sustainable plan for reinventing local food systems in Western Africa and beyond!
We are proud to have placed in the top 15 teams globally, having advanced past many prestigious schools and teams. Below you can find our presentation deck and executive summary! More details about the competition can be found here.
