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.
