Sustainable Food Partnership aims to build a replicable model of food production to produce nutritious and affordable biscuits with locally sourced ingredients. The partnership will build a collaborative model that will include global leaders in food production and local biscuit manufacturers.
P4G invested a combined total of US $599,991 in start-up funding in 2018 and scale-up funding in 2020 in this partnership. P4G will accelerate SFP by advancing engagement opportunities with the National Platform in Ethiopia and matching the partnerships with investors based on its business model.
The partnership aims to make the model investable and eligible for funding through a blended finance mechanism from a mix of corporations and investors. The anticipated impacts are to improve nutrition and food security for children and women in two selected markets (urban markets and refugee and host communities); and income generation from the production of local ingredients and biscuit sales to base-of-the-pyramid consumers through a sustainable business model.
