HOW WE DO IT

Through advancements in modern technology in food drying, storage and packaging, the shelf-life of common agricultural commodities can exceed 20+ years. By standardizing and certifying extended shelf-life food trade, GFE has established a new asset class for investment and financial products. It is intended that these assets be owned by both public and private entities, including benevolently-minded investment funds who hold the assets in GFE facilities strategically located around the world. These reserves can be used to fill trade gaps and inefficiencies that lead to widespread food insecurity and hunger as well as for saving lives in response to humanitarian emergencies.
