40 percent of the food produced globally goes uneaten.
Komal Ahmad founded COPIA with the goal of efficiently distributing food that otherwise would go to waste. "It’s not a scarcity problem here, which most people think hunger is. It’s a logistics problem," said Ahmad during a GreenBiz Studio interview at VERGE 16.
The COPIA app allows companies and organizations with surplus food to connect with non-profits that distribute the food to those in need.
