Taimba tries to tackle Africa’s massive food loss issue by providing the online support needed to tackle the information asymmetries and market education gaps that are creating this situation. It aims to create an open online market and to streamline supply chains between farmers and retailers who, armed with data intelligence, will be better equipped to avoid food waste.  Value-added chains in agriculture are now so inefficiently organised that a large amount of the continent’s agricultural produce goes to waste – the food currently lost in Africa could feed 300 million people. As a result, African smallholders are losing income each year and the prices of agricultural produce continue to rise, threatening many people’s survival.
