eProd Solutions Limited is excited to be one of the finalists of the East Africa Trade and Investment Hub Post Harvest Competition (EAPTC2017).

EAPTC2017 attracted more than 200 innovators from East Africa who showcased technological solutions for improving nutrition and food security in Africa by reducing food loss and waste. Poor postharvest practices currently result in the loss of 60 percent of all food that is produced in Africa. The top three innovators from the 2017 competition split $30,000 in seed capital to scale up and disseminate their technologies for the reduction of postharvest food losses. Following a post-competition analysis, the USAID Hub wanted to do even more to ensure that the participating innovators had every opportunity to have transformational impact.

The BDS program was therefore coined with training and mentorship needs informed by an assessment that was carried out on each of the finalists to identify areas in which the enterprises could scale up their businesses.
