Food comes in a flood

and washes through.

Reservoir’s mission is to build a dam

About food drying

About Food Drying

  • Solar-based food-drying is the oldest ‘processing’ technology

  • Franchising and NGO partnership to allow rapid scaling

  • Drives value-add to rural poor (especially women)

  • Benefits of drying include:

    • Ease of practice

    • Straightforward food safety

    • Culturally familiar

    • Provides long-term storage with minimal packaging

  • New opportunities:

    • Creates new products like tomato flour

    • Improves nutrition andprovides livelihoods


Training

Training

  • Hands on technology transfer for dryer operation

  • Food preservation techniques including use of sugar, acid, and salt

  • Hygiene

  • Food safety

  • Sample recipes

  • Machine manual

  • Curriculum

  • Business and profit

  • Microfinance loans

  • Quality standards

Dehydrator functional specs

Dehydrator Functional Specs

  • High solar gain design with absorptive and reflective surfaces

  • Insulated top and bottom to hold heat

  • Vent doors allow for heat and air flow management

  • Big temp shift from inside to outside air

  • Works on mostly cloudy days& from sunup to sundown

  • Can reach near boiling temps on sunny days

  • Pedestal stand allows turning by a single person

  • Maintained in the village

Value add assessment

Value-Add Assessment

Tomato example

Produce $40 per month in value add

Dryer cost $300, finance at $20 for 18 months

ROI for dryer in 7 months

Food as far as the eye can see…

…but hunger persists.

It’s time to get practical.

It’s time to address root causes with sustainable solutions.
