Buddhima Thanks for getting back to us! Feel free to shoot some details on some of the opportunities you see in your area if you don't mind (

Info that's most useful for preliminary discussions is:
Relative Humidity during day, and at night.
Types of food being lost to waste.
Supply of waste highly decentralized? Or more centralized?
Rural? Urban?
How much (weight) of each food product is being wasted?
In what conditions? Food grade? Outside?
Are there buildings or covered areas available for use on site?
How is transportation done? Trucks? Boats? Difficult?

(if you don't have all answers, don't worry, I just wanted to prep you with the main questions I would ask to begin with.).

Send me an email mate and let's start solving this thing!

Aye. Can't be mad at that. I look forward to hearing more from Buddhima  eh?!

Hi Buddhima , Siri Lanka is certainly a place we would be interested in collaborating, but we haven''t met with any particular folks from SL yet. If you believe you can connect us with some "problem holders" in your region who can seriously discuss an opportunity to capture food waste, lets talk mate!
