Hivos, WeltHungerhilfe and Hivos Impact Investments partnered to train and invest in 14 food entrepreneurs from four Southern African countries: Malawi, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The aim of the #Disrupt!Food business incubation and competitive ideation boot camp held in Harare, Zimbabwe was to support and strengthen the value propositions of entrepreneurs who have an interest in sustainable food production and consumption.

Zambia needs to rethink its food and agriculture system in order to improve diversity in both food production and consumption, according to the new report “Sustainable Diets for All: Agriculture, food systems, diets and nutrition in Zambia”. The report finds that every US dollar of investment in proven nutrition interventions could potentially generate around USD18 in economic returns from improved health and productivity of the population.
