The Bringo Story
Bringo fresh starts in Uganda, at a food market filled with fruits and vegetables that were poorly handled and in filthy conditions. It got our founder thinking about why customers were paying high prices for poor quality produce and what happens to all the fresh produce that doesn’t reach the markets.
He was shocked to find out that it got wasted. Over 30% of fresh produce in Uganda is wasted before leaving the farm. This results into scarcity and increasing food prices.
Determined to end food wastage and put a smile on the face of small-holder farmers, he visited the farms, talked to farmers and came up with the idea of Bringo.
Since then, we have gone from just a handful of customers and suppliers and packing our fresh produce boxes in a small room every Saturday morning to delivering four days a week.
