Your Selected Place: what’s the name of the Place you’re developing a Vision for?

Especially in North part of Bangladesh but will be covered in whole country gradually as this idea have a great flexibility to enter market

What country is your selected Place located in?

Bangladesh

Describe your relationship to the place you’ve selected.

This is my home country. In our country the foods especially vegetables, rice production are much high in north Bengal. So there are many producers who do not get proper money on their product sell. There are many middleman whom are getting more benefits by buying foods from farmers paying very poor amount money but they are selling it to consumer with great benefit. So here consumers are paying high amount of costing but farmers do not getting benefited from this. Here we will produce foods and will sell it to consumer with little benefits and if we buy any foods from other producers then we will pay appropriate amount to then according to our sell to consumers.

Describe the People and Place: Provide information that would be helpful for an outsider who has never been there and may have no context about this Place to better understand the area.

Bangladesh is a very susceptible to climatic disasters. So some food supplier occur sudden price hike during disaster time. Though the price hike is sometimes not related to the disasters but they said that this hike is for disasters. Here people do not get proper food with proper hygiene. We are here to supply foods with proper hygiene maintenance.

What is the estimated population (current 2020) in your Place?

20000000

Challenges: Describe the current (2020) and the future (2050) challenges that your food system faces.

Now our main challenge is enhancement of production chain with a improved hygienic facilities and building awareness in consumers and introducing this system to consumers and producers also. If our production chain is become ready as our plan then we can provide foods as consumers demand and also what they need. Our one of the most challenge is to cut out the food wastage occur in distribution, production, storage stages. This can be minimized by our system where there supply of food will be on the basis of consumer demands and according to their nutritional requirement.

Address the Challenges: Describe how your Vision will address the challenges described in the previous question.

We can minimize food wastage by providing our supply of foods as consumers demand according to when they need and at what amount they need and there amount of requirement will be determined by calculating and estimating their nutritional needs. For there our system will hire some dietitian to provide proper diet knowledge required by the consumers. Consumers will be asked to submit their health report which will help our dietitian to comment on their diet chart.

High Level Vision: With these challenges addressed, now provide a high level description of how the Place and the lives of its People will be different than they are now.

The amount of requirement of foods by consumers will be determined by calculating and estimating their nutritional needs. For there our system will hire some dietitian to provide proper diet knowledge required by the consumers. Consumers will be asked to submit their health report which will help our dietitian to comment on their diet chart. If they have any health issues then they will be notified with proper suggestion. If there are any allergic issues related to consumer health then they will be informed about their health problem and about what to eat and what to avoid. If they order anything which is harmful to then they will be informed about it and there are no way of replacement of that food then they will be informed about to minimize the risk of contamination.

Full Vision: How do you describe your Vision for a regenerative and nourishing food future for your Place and People for 2050?

In our country, there are some distributors, retailers whom are responsible for sudden price hike and in most of the cases many foods are wasted in home scale when consumers do not use that as food. The wastage of food is happened due to inappropriate knowledge on requirement, excessive order by consumers, improper refrigeration facilities. So if we can provide our supply chain on consumers demand that will reduce food wastage, refrigeration requirement, will reduce food price and financial losses.
