The Project: Thriving Green

Hunger is not a problem. It is an obscenity. How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.

Concept

We want to combat malnutrition in Kenya with sustainable, innovative methods. To this end, we have already built cultivation facilities for the microalgaespirulina in the Kenyan desert together with the locals in recent years. The cultivated spirulina is intended to enable Kenyans to feed their families and their entire village sustainably.

The income generated from independently operating their own breeding facilities also creates an economic boom that opens up a whole new livelihood for the people, e.g. access to education and medical care. The technical solution has been verified by TÜV Nord, its ecological sustainability has been confirmed by the WWF and it has received the Social Innovation Award from the Bayer Foundationand the GreenTec Award 2017 the largest and most important environmental award in the world.

Vision

Our vision is to combat malnutrition in the long term.In cooperation with local Kenyans , we are looking for promising, innovative concepts to ensure a balanced diet. The microalgae spirulina is just one example that has become our trademark. Our aim is to make optimum use of the local resources at our locations. We are therefore always on the lookout for other sustainable concepts that can complement our portfolio in the fight against malnutrition.
