Streamlined Sustenance

Initiatives target issues such as food security and waste in India

Implications - With the proliferation of mobile technology in emerging markets changing the way much of the world conducts business, several public and private initiatives based in India seek to eliminate issues related to food and water, providing platforms and services that do everything from streamlining access to clean drinking water to ensure a restaurant produces as little food waste as possible. This shift demonstrates that as tech innovations become increasingly accessible in emerging markets, consumers are eager to incorporate them into solutions for local and regional challenges.
