A $100-a-month service that provides food delivery to the most remote parts of the world can be expensive, and there’s a growing chorus of complaints from the poor.
But that’s not stopping one company from launching a service to make the experience as cheap as possible for those living on the margins of the global food delivery market.
“We have the lowest cost per kilo of meat, fish, and vegetables we’ve ever shipped,” says Robyn Lee, CEO of FoodShark.
“If you want to do that in the United States, we’re a lot cheaper than what’s in most markets.”
Lee says she has already started to see an increase in food deliveries from low-income communities.
She says her team is now able to ship up to $200 worth of food a day.
The company’s delivery service also delivers to the remote towns of Papua New Guinea, Mozambique, and South Africa, where some of the poorest people in the world live.
Lee says FoodSharks delivery has become increasingly popular among those in these areas because of the way they use the technology to avoid expensive, time-consuming transport and other logistics costs.
Lee started her company with a friend and is now expanding into cities around the world.
She estimates that FoodShots is delivering about 150,000 kilos of food every day to people living in the most dangerous parts of Africa and Asia.
She said her team has been working on a plan to launch a larger and more efficient service in the next year.
Lee said FoodShorks delivery has grown out of her need to serve the most vulnerable populations of the planet.
She has started her own mobile food delivery business to serve her customers in Africa and other places that are very vulnerable.
Lee told Fortune she has a team of about 10 people working on the project.
Lee believes her company is making a big impact on the way we think about food.
She believes that if we can get people on the street, they will pay attention to what they are eating.
“People don’t always care about the cost of food,” Lee said.
“They care about their health and safety.
Foodsharks is an innovative and innovative service that I think is making an impact on food delivery.”
