Goals and Objectives
1. To be the solution to any problem related to Food production in Africa.
2. To be the first port of call for issues regarding Food Laws and Food Safety.
3. Smooth and Easy networking amongst various stakeholders.
African Food Revolution Values
As African Food Revolution we use UBUNTU as part of the teams’ core values. We define UBUNTU into survival, solidarity spirit, compassion and respect.
The performance and survival of AFR depends on the individual team numbers who through their knowledge, skills and abilities ensure that AFR maintains high levels of productivity and effectiveness. The team members rely on each other to ensure that personal goals are sacrificed for the goals of the team.
We value working on tasks as a team as we firmly believe that the African food problem can only be solved by Africans. By working as different nationals with a common goal, helps us embrace a spirit of unison on a common enemy which is hunger.
Compassion has made Africans survive in difficult times. Compassion in AFR helps us create a shared vision. We firmly believe that all humans are
interconnected. The shared vision ensures that all our team members belong in a gastronomic social network with common goals and objectives.
At AFR we understand that lack of respect and dignity leads to unobtainable goals. High levels of respect and dignity positively influence AFR performances. Our team members aim to possess mutual trust for each other and various stakeholders, which creates a positive climate, leading to a more effective AFR team. Our diversity in the group and the respect for each other makes us a powerful entity.
Indigenous Food harvesting and management
One of the cornerstones of any developing community/society is the ability to identify local sourced food resources and modify them so that they are part of a sustainable productive food chain. Indigenous food sources are often adapted to local biomes and often outperform imported food sources. In Africa a number of these food sources have not been studied fully. In recent years the potential to use Baobab trees to alleviate poverty has been evaluated. A number of foods still have not been exploited fully. It is for this reason that the African Food Revolution will look at food chains for various local foods on the African continent. This will involve characterization of the food matrixes and the evaluation of the production of novel food products. The African Food Revolution will be the pioneers in this domain and will publish scientific research in reputable journals. Micro-industries will be initiated hopefully across Africa with the goal of reducing the levels of poverty on the continent.
AFR will work across the Food chain, offering the following services to food producers:
- Local and traditional food product development and marketing
- Scientific research on indigenous and traditional African foods
- Indigenous animal husbandry and welfare
- Novel food production
- Insect marketing and recipe development
- Product development
- Developing and modifying African Food laws and Food Safety Regulations
- Career guidance for students
- Small farmer training
- Equipment testing and suggesting suitable equipment for food producers
- Market analysis using Artificial Intelligence. Regression models and Exchange Rate models
Our Research and Development Hub
As a team we use our previous experiences in Africa to ideate, strategize and find solutions to the food crisis in Africa through embracing technology and use of the latest research methodologies.
Has a huge potential to drive food production in marginalized areas and alleviate poverty through employment creation. Local agrifood chains have multiple hindrances which often affect the full potential of this industry. AFR intends to disruptively penetrate this sector using technology,
intuition and scientific acumen. There is a huge potential in creating a new viable industry using indigenous and traditional foods. This is due to increased number of African food making into mainstream production streams.
Our potential clients
Our potential clients are the numerous farmers, food producers and owners of small holder restaurants, selling mainly indigenous food products. Our various potential customers have limited access to food evaluation by scientific institutes. We link the gap between the Doable and the Un-Doable, demystifying all potential threats.
