MiFood installs robots in farms to increase the harvesting speed and energy efficiency, reduce harvesting labor cost by 50% and co2 emissions by 75%, eliminate crop losses, rotten food and workplace a
Currently we have 4 clients and more than 30 farms interested in the technology and we are harvesting 10.000 fruits per day. We have already launched the MVP and we are acquiring new clients.
Problem or Opportunity
Farmers are failing to take advantage of technology, which means harvesting food in a farm currently involves long collecting times, damaged produce, low hygiene, higher labor costs, and significant risk of accidents in the farms as well as a high risk of COVID-19 transmission between the farmers.
Many of these problems are the result of human error. Human farmers make mistakes, work at a slower pace, and have accidents due to fatigue. Current systems employ humans to do a task that could be easily automated by a robot, creating additional costs to the farmer.
Solution (product or service)
The MiFood Robot automate the process of harvesting and collecting food in farms. The robot replaces farmers, collects and stores food items including fruit and vegetables in farms faster and maximizes crops produced and enhances sustainability increasing efficiency and reducing co2 emission on harvesting.
The result is quicker harvesting time, more efficient collecting, lower labor costs, and reduced risk of accidents.
Our business plan consists on selling the MiFood Robot technology to existing farms to automate their food harvesting process.
We charge 2.000€ per robot, farmers are getting a 100% return of investment in 3 months in countries like Luxembourg or Netherlands where the minimum salary is around 2.000€.
Farmers are offered a (RaaS) leasing service for the robot where the farmer pays month to month a small fee to the bank for 1-2 years.
Our company receives a MRR from a Robot as a Service (RaaS), farm owner pays 99€ per month as a maintenance fee and software updates.
