The FoodPrint Journey

FoodPrint is a Cape Town (South Africa) based tech-for-good startup.

We simplify production and harvest data collection for smallholder farmers and connect them to market opportunities using our blockchain-enabled farm-to-fork supply chain platform.

For the initial pilot phase we partnered with OZCF Farm and Market (2019/2020). The market's patrons are able to access information regarding selected produce from their cellphones by scanning a QR Code.

From local farms, to your table

We use world-class technology to bring you fresh food, from local producers!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Supporting Local

In making food supply chains transparent, we reveal where the produce is from.

This helps advance the cause of supporting locally grown produce, which in turn can immensely benefit small-scale farmers and local economies

Natural As It's In Nature

Not all produce at the market is organically certified but it is pesticide free. You are given the knowledge so that you can choose accordingly.

The produce is grown using sustainable farming methods that are good for the land and the people.

Responsible Consumption

As the saying goes, knowledge is power! FoodPrint arms consumers with information about food before they purchase - enabling them to make informed and responsible decisions about what they purchase to eat and where their money goes.

Championing Sustainability

Communicating the information related to food sustainability such as whether it is in season, use of pesticides and distance travelled from source to destination (food miles) contributes positively to advancing sustainable food systems.

Responsible and Ethical Production

Our food traceability platform helps farmers to keep food safety and quality top of mind.

In addition, by making the practises behind the growing of food produce transparent, FoodPrint has the potential to help advance ethical and fair production for everyone involved.

Innovation

By using the latest technology, we are playing our part in ensuring that South African food systems are advancing and globally relevant.
