Scaled Impact creates and develops projects that become commercial entities as standalone assets or businesses
Our current ventures are:
Umoya Foods is a company that develops and markets functional foods out of Africa
The ingredients are from indigenous crops, grown locally and chosen for their nutritional value, their use by small farmers and their robustness against climate change
Umoya creates functional foods, driving product development, marketing and channel management and helping end customers understand the benefits
Umoya develops and provides drying and processing technologies that are sized to small farms to help: capture value locally, reduce on-farm waste and minimize transport costs and emissions
Umoya dryers builds and promotes on-farm solar and hybrid drying technology specifically designed for rural farmers in Africa
Drying crops on the farm reduces post-harvest loss and significantly simplifies cost and complexity on the route to market. It gives farmers the opportunity to add value on site and raise more income
We structure feasibility and implementation projects both setting up the technology and supporting farmers in finding markets for their dried products
