BSH collaborates with UN World Food Programme
BSH has joined forces with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and will collaborate with the WFP Innovation Accelerator, providing expertise in cooking appliances, storing and processing food and healthy eating to projects the Accelerator sources, supports and scales to help reach zero hunger.
The WFP Innovation Accelerator focuses on the most impactful innovations brought to life through an iterative sprint format, which has reached 3.5 million people in 2020 alone via 90 innovations in the last five years.
The partnership will support innovations in two emergency contexts, specifically the H2Grow initiative’s expansion to North Eastern Nigeria and early-stage Sprints in South Sudan.
BSH CEO Dr. Carla Kriwet (pictured) said: “This collaboration is in line with our company’s purpose: to improve the quality of life. Sufficient nutrition is a basic human right and one of the central components of a dignified life. BSH is eager to contribute our expertise and resources to have a sustainable effect on people’s lives.”
The United Nations World Food Programme is the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. It is the world’s largest humanitarian organisation, saving lives in emergencies and using food assistance to build a pathway to peace, stability and prosperity for people recovering from conflict, disasters and the impact of climate change.
In 2019, the World Food Programme’s work reached 97 million people.
