One-third of the world’s available food either spoils or gets thrown away before it ever reaches a plate—that’s enough to feed everyone in the world for two months. And with 1.2 billion people food insecure or undernourished, millions of vulnerable smallholder farmers losing profits they can’t spare, and a population expected to increase by 2 billion by 2050, we cannot afford to allow these losses to continue. Fortunately, food loss and waste are preventable, and solutions already exist. From wider adoption of technologies that keep food fresh longer to models of private sector engagement that ensure farmers have steady buyers for their yields, we can ensure more food gets to more people.
Post-Harvest Loss Reduction
Integrated Approaches to Sustainable Food Systems and Communities
PYXERA Global aims to implement inclusive and systematic food loss solutions that work across the food supply system: from farm to store to table and beyond.
Private Sector Engagement
By fixing broken links in the chain from farms to markets in communities, we aim to guarantee farmers steady access to new local and global markets.
We help ensure farmers have access to the technologies and training necessary to preserve crops in harvest, packaging, and distribution.
We work with companies to build processing industries and invest in solutions for smallholder farmers that move more food to market.
We are creating the tools businesses need to measure and track supply chain loss, which will encourage accountability, strengthen supply chains and increase profits.
