All People, At All Times…

Have Access To Safe AndNutritious Food

By 2050, the world population is expected to reach 9.7 billion, with over half of all people living on the continent of Africa. In the East Africa region, the population has steadied near 3% for the past 10 years, making it one of the fastest growing regions globally. This rapid growth raises the concern of food security not only in the region but in Africa as a whole. AVI is committed to combat this concern and alleviate insecurity, aiming to be involved in every step of crop and livestock production with the end goal of providing a consistent and reliable supply of food to families in need.

Achieving Food Security

Food Deficits are on the rise in east africa

Food security is defined as the condition in which all people, at all times, have physical, social, and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life. Food deficits are on the rise in Eastern Africa due to a declining trend in food production relative to population growth. This creates a dependency on imports and subsequently unaffordable food.

We Combat Dependency

On Imports & Subsequently Unaffordable Food

AVI will combat this through local production at a competitive rate while maintaining import quality and decreasing the distance food travels. This influences the reliance on foreign trade along with global market swings. The development and implementation of Farm-to-Fork value chains make the end of a food secure region feasible. AVI

begins the development process at production, followed by processing and ending with products reaching consumer markets for consumption. AVI’s vision of fostering a food secure region in Eastern Sub-Saharan Africa will be strived towards in every seed sow, product processed and stomach filled with nutritious food.

Production

Sustainable production practices are at the forefront of AVI’s decision-making process. For our clients, sustainability brings high efficiency and profit maximization…

The use of the world’s best technology and equipment help AVI and its clients produce high yields, keep input costs low, and reach import quality food grade. Data collected from biodiversity, energy use, irrigation water, water quality, soil conservation, animal health, air, and greenhouse emissions, and quality assurance will be used to assess the sustainability within the production models. Internalizing data from the metrics combined with updated laws, regulation, and best practices ensure the food quality will be maintained at a high level. Sustainable production from day one sets up AVI and its clients to responsibly meet the needs of the present and be ready for improvements in the future.

Processing

The components of processing raw commodities for human consumption is important when increasing food supply. Processing allows the optimization of nutrient availability and increases the useful life of food. AVI and its partners focus on maintaining safety and quality in each step of the value chain.

The safety and shelf life of food, enabled by food processing, is essential to have a significant impact in Uganda. The processing stage reduces food loss throughout the supply chain from production to consumption and creates sustainable enhancements in preservation. Extending shelf-life storage of food increases the accessibility of safe food supply. The facilities and technology AVI and its clients use to play a key role to reduce food loss at the production and processing stages. In developing countries, minimizing food loss and waste presents an opportunity to maximize food usage.

Healthy Food

According to the Committee on World Food Security (2012) food security is when “all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.” The ability to grow food, have access to a life-sustaining amount of food and understanding the local conditions while seeing opportunity holds much power in today’s world…

Today, almost 43 million people do not fall under this statement in Uganda and by 2025 it will be up to 55 million people. AVI is empowering Uganda to sustain themselves with food while gaining benefits of exporting food to increase the economy. The resources available will be tapped into for quality benefit in production and processing. The technology used is to make production and processing nimble and more equipped to protect those available resources while producing food. AVI is strengthening all four pillars of a food secure nation: availability, access, utilization, and stability.
