The simple truth is that access to healthy, nutritious food on a regular basis is not possible for more than 80% of households in Africa, with over 39% of households facing severe inadequate access to food, and up to 49% of households not getting diversity in their diets, while a third of food produced ending in waste bins. At Ayazona, we are challenging that.
We started by empowering our local communities especially the low-income households to discover the most affordable food, groceries, and basic home essentials, place an order and have it delivered at the lowest possible cost while ensuring 0% food waste and 100% accessibility. But, that's just the start, there is more you and I can do, to make the dream of universal access to food and home essentials for everyone come true.
Partnering with local restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, and vibandas, we make available the most affordable local options while helping small local businesses grow and remain sustainable. This ensures not only local economic growth but a sustainable future.
We envision a world where every single household has unlimited, sustainable access to healthy nutritious food, and home essentials.
