Access to food and improved nutrition at the base of the pyramid

In this study, based on the analysis of 16 cases and expert interviews, five different business interventions for Base of the Pyramid (BoP) ventures were identified that achieve social impact, financial sustainability and, potentially, scale.

  • Farmer development services
  • Secured sourcing schemes
  • BoP intermediaries
  • Food product adaptation
  • Hybrid market creation

The five business interventions identified are an entry point for companies and other stakeholders to develop products and services to improve access to food and better nutrition to the BoP.
