Food for us: Developing a mobile phone application to reduce food losses and waste

The SI is contributing specialist food systems research expertise to this consortium, funded through the 10YFP Trust Fund established by UNEP. The aim of the project is to develop and trial a mobile phone application in South Africa that contributes towards the alleviation of food insecurity and aids access to nutritious food in a country where significant food loss occurs on-farm. The research will add to the limited but growing body of knowledge on social learning, sustainable food systems and food loss and waste in South Africa. More information can be found on
