Wheeling Fruits: Drying fruits instead of tossing it

yvonne1
 

Wheeling Fruits by Miyonga Fresh Greens is a mobile food processing unit that allows to dry surplus and “ugly” fruits in order to make them durable and transportable. This saves costs and diminishes food waste. This mobile unit can be mounted on a trailer and transported between farming areas.

The basis of the venture’s business model is the sale of products to customers abroad, e.g. in the European Union. A model in which the mobile processing unit is rented to farmers is also an option.

Wheeling Fruits has secured a total of 300.000€ investments, among others from the Kenya Climate Innovation Center and the Research Triangle Institute. In 2021, the company exported 88 of dried fruits. Wheeling fruits generates income for 30.000 farmers and has an annual revenue of 3 million Euros. The company opened one aggregation site so far but plans to open three more sites soon to meet surplus demand.Wheeling Fruits by Miyonga Fresh Greens is a mobile food processing unit that allows to dry surplus and “ugly” fruits in order to make them durable and transportable.
