Takachar


United States of America

Takachar have pioneered a process for low-cost pretreatment and densification of biomass at source (i.e. at the level of small farms where biomass originates). Because this process immediately improves the quality of biomass in terms of shelf life, density, and transportability, it becomes much more economically feasible to source and sell the biomass-based commodities over long distances. This opens up new rural areas with biomass that previously have been deemed too far away to serve as an economic fuel. The creation of new values from low-quality biomass is also expected to increase incomes for distributed small-holder farmers.

The Community Markets Purchasing Real and Affordable (Compra)


United States of America

Community Markets Purchasing Real and Affordable (COMPRA) Foods is a purchasing cooperative project that creates an alternative food distribution system for small grocers and convenience stores in food desert neighborhoods in Los Angeles. There is currently a large disconnect in the food system in these communities. Small food retailers in the Promise Zone often source their food products from big box grocers paying full price for these products and then marking them up for sale in their own establishments. This often occurs because entrepreneurs lack relationships with distributors who can deliver produce to their businesses at wholesale prices. Small and mid size farmers who may be interested in selling their produce directly to these establishments also lack the relationships and efficient distribution systems that can connect them to the hundreds of stores in low income food deserts.This service gap between growers distribution companies and small food retailers impacts low income consumers tremendously.
