Global Foodnet brings together food innovators in Kenya, southern Africa, Peru and Finland to develop foods from indigenous foods with indigenous knowledge.

Global Foodnet is formed by the University of Eastern Finland, the Centre of Innovation for Andean Grains at the Universidad Nacional Agraria La Molina, Tshwane University of Technology, Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, UI Global and the Southern Africa Network for Biosciences.

Global Foodnet tells the stories of food innovation from indigenous foods and knowledge.

Funding for the Global Foodnet has been received from the FinCEAL Plus Bridges Partnership Support Grant coordinated by the Finnish University Partnership for International Development (UniPID).
