FarmEd is the leading example of the social enterprises created by Project Everest to achieve the UN Sustainable Development goals. FarmEd’s purpose is simple: Solve world hunger through accessible agricultural expertise.
SITUATION

Project Everest is dedicated to helping realise the Sustainable Development Goals. Of these goals, goal two Zero Hunger: end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture is the FarmEd’s priority. Agricultural expertise from research, corporations and current practice is not reaching small holder farmers in the developing world, however, it is where the most opportunity exists for improvement and development. FarmEd exists as a registered business in Fiji (most advanced), with Cambodia (second most advanced) to follow and assessments for its viability underway in Malawi (next most) and Timor-Leste (least advanced).

Across all countries, experiments and specific focus areas have been defined to ensure FarmEd’s progress and success.

MISSION

Project Everest has developed an enterprise that is dedicated to improving agricultural practices across a number of developing nations. The aim of FarmEd is to solve world hunger through accessible agricultural advice, which will increase economic opportunities in local communities through the development and optimisation of farmland and the supply chain associated. Through the concurrent development of the farm, market research and analysis and the FarmEd consulting services, we will be able to effectively increase the income of smallholder farmers (70% of the world’s food is created by smallholder farmers) and increase food security through the more stable domestic food supply.

OPPORTUNITY

FarmEd and associated activities within the agriculture space at Project Everest stands to improve not just the income and food security of smallholder farmers, but nation-wide stability within the domestic food supply chain. With increased income, comes opportunities to further optimise farms, provide education to family members and increase general quality of life. FarmEd’s long-term method of achieving scale and improving food security is through the FarmEd app, which will enable coordination of supply & demand, provide agricultural advice and identify crop issues through facial plant recognition software.
