UNB student’s tech company combats crop waste in Nigeria
Damilare Odumosu found a way to make an impact helping farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa get produce to market.
When Damilare Odumosu thought of food waste in his home country of Nigeria, he asked what he could do to make things better.
The 25-year-old son of a computer programmer decided to use technology to solve the problem.
After lots of failed ideas and talking to farmers on the ground in Nigeria, the University of New Brunswick master’s student created All Farmers Online, a company that uses geotagging and an online store to share information on food availability and bridge the gap between farmers and buyers.
