Africa GreenTec AG

Africa GreenTec (AGT) offers a solar-powered cooling storage unit. The lack of infrastructure and services has massive effects on food security and livelihoods in rural areas in Sub-Saharan Africa. In this region, 40 percent of the post-harvest food produce is lost due to the lack of cooling storage. This has negative impacts on the income and nutritional status of smallholder farmers and their communities.

WFP Innovation Bootcamp is an opportunity for teams to ideate further and refine their solutions to become field-ready. Over the course of a week, they will participate in workshops and one-on-one mentorship with industry experts on user research, human-centered design, prototyping, market access, and other areas.
