Today, rice is a wasteful antiquated $550 billion global industry that feeds 3.5 billion people. By 2050 it will be 6 billion and production must increase by 70%. Annually, 750 million tonnes of paddy is harvested; 60 million tonnes is lost from Field to Fork, 180 million tonnes of what’s left is damaged reducing its value. Koolmill has pioneered a solution to this global problem.
Why? we believe that our disruptive IP will transform the way the world is fed. Minimising food loss and increasing incomes, our IP will move rice to a sustainable future. How? our unique business model and IP makes state of the art IP accessible to all millers and smallholders regardless of size, gender or location. What? We have pioneered a disruptive processing technology, offering accessible simpler mills with power savings of 80%, All current machines do something mechanically to the rice. Koolmill treats rice as a fluid; we do something with the rice.
Impact: Milled, the paddy lost each year would feed 300 million people in Asia for a year; in Africa, it would be 1.2 billion. 1.5 million poorly performing SME rice mills can now access an IP that will transform them into best in class producers. Our off-grid localised milling option disrupts the established rice value chain. 200 million smallholders in Asia grow 90% of rice. They now have an option to become value added producers. Koolmill’s IP will reduce the environmental impact or rice and boost earnings, lifting millions from poverty.
