 Food Waste: Internationaler Künstlerverein e.V & Hawa Artists

An exhibition on FOOD WASTE With artists from IKV Internationaler Künstlerverein e.V., Hawa Artists and the participation of the German Embassy in Nairobi.

Due to global mass-distribution the world is divided into the very rich and the very poor where a disconcerting percent of the population, especially children suffer from hunger. As taken the year 2050 will see an explosion of the population that will widen this gap – about 40 percent more food is needed! Research about the food distribution shows that at the moment nearly the same rate of food products is wasted either as crop on the fields, insufficient warehouses or transport, lack of processing or during distribution and at the consumer level.

The gap of available food and demand could be closed theoretically by a better transfer of know-how and a change of consumer habits. The exhibition of the IKV-Club of international artists supports the awareness of Food Waste as a challenge through this collaborative exhibition by African and German artists.

The exhibition is within the concept of the first African Food Waste Congress organized under the leadership of the University of Nairobi that brings together worldwide experts in agriculture, food processing and the total supply chain to work towards solutions for this problem.
