About 795 million people of the 7.3 billion people in the world are suffering from chronic undernourishment in 2014-2016, estimates The UN Food and Agriculture Organisation.
Almost all the hungry people, 780 million, live in developing countries. The utilization of waste food could become the game changer in these countries.
In past, many initiatives have been launched to increase the recovery of discarded food.
Motivated by concern for future food supply and reduce hunger in many part of the world, a new start-up NewfoodZ Millennial Youth Advisors, Daisy and Lewis with founder Christian J Murray has launched the first press release at Prnewswire and their crowd funding campaign will be launched at Indiegogo on 12 July 2016.

This is in order to raise $1.5 million US – the largest ask ever from the crowdfunding food community.
Founder Christian J Murray said, “I joined the company as I knew the day would come when we would critically need efficient food processing the world over. When I first witnessed the technologies we now offer I gave up my media career to go full-time into eco-sustainability.”
“Getting public support to grow will help us take the message to governments and Fortune 100 companies, further reinforcing the commitments to the UN Sustainable Development Goals of 2015,” reports PRNewsWire.
