JUST Aims to Combat Malnutrition in West Africa
Vegan brand JUST, formerly known as Hampton Creek, is launching a new product aimed at reducing malnutrition across West Africa. Named “Just Power Gari”, the new affordable, nutrition-packed product is similar to oatmeal.
“We’ve spent two years on the ground in Liberia working with the community to create a long-term solution to a broken food system,” JUST recently wrote on its Twitter account.
According to the company, there are millions of parents across Liberia who are struggling to provide their families with healthy food. But the problem is not limited to West Africa; this is a worldwide issue. Globally, more than 2.1 billion people struggle to put nutritious food on the table. Just Power Gari could be part of the solution to this problem.
