Our solution


Taking the global innovative OzHarvest Food Rescue Model

We are combining with KOTO, Vietnam’s first recognised Social Enterprise and its know-how and expertise on empowering people and creating an impact-driven, purpose-led, Social Enterprise VietHarvest. The “Harvest” Model was started in Australia and has since been replicated in New Zealand, United Kingdom, South Africa and now Vietnam.

The difference we
make to the planet

We have big ambitions to reduce food waste, hunger and poverty and create a sustainable food culture and eco-system in Vietnam that is in line with tackling some of the most challenging United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We rescue and save good quality surplus food that would otherwise go to landfill and deliver it to vulnerable and underserved communities. We work with the industry to collect surplus food from hotels, restaurants, supermarkets and local food businesses and catering companies and deliver that food directly to organisations that support children, women and men.

Our solution

We are committed to reducing food waste, hunger and improving the lives of underserved communities in Vietnam.


Globally, one-third or 1.3 billion tonnes of food produced is lost or wasted around the world according to the United Nations. The retail cost of food waste is $1 trillion USD.

In Ho Chi Minh City alone, 5,000 tonnes of food is wasted per day. Vietnam is said to be the second-largest producer of food waste in the region, after China. In Vietnam, most food is lost through poor handling, storage and spoilage in distribution. It is estimated that 80% of rice in Vietnam never makes it to market for these reasons.

The Vietnamese Mekong Delta is one of Earth’s most agriculturally productive regions and is of global importance for its exports of rice, shrimp, and fruit but is under threat from Climate Change.

In the first half of 2017, there were an estimated 574,000 people suffering from hunger in Vietnam.
