This springs from our deep desire for helping to Advance the Science of Food & Food Innovations focussed on turning African traditional Indigenous Knowledge (IK) on food preparation, ingredients, skills, and methods into modern food innovations for the global healthy food market.
We provide an opportunity to practice and improve access to new markets & trades, while developing hands-on knowledge and experience in importance of sustainability and use of innovative novel ingredients, ethical food manufacturing, food as natural resource, food and agricultural, Food Waste, Food Loss, Food waste management, QMS, Controls, food packaging for safety and for logistics, warehousing and accreditation, post-harvest handling , exports and imports and international business.
Enthusiastic small food artisan and food entrepreneurs are taught to use tasty natural foods (with potential commercialisation) using natural and novel ingredients and methods of preserving the natural taste of foods using African Indigenous Knowledge, cooking skills and methods.
We believe that Sourcing and supplying of quality natural ingredients, and preparation and consumption of nutritious and natural foods will encourage local chefs, food science labs, food processors, restaurants and street food vendors to develop healthier food options, to promote their marketing and consumption.
