Based at KAUST in western Saudi Arabia, we first conceptualized the idea of Edama as a solution to the growing threat posed by unsustainable levels of organic waste in the country.
Organic waste, primarily food waste, is a complex problem. Saudi Arabia ranks among the top food wasters in the world. At the same time, the Kingdom has limited arable land and scarce water resources to support mass-scale agriculture and feed the increasing population.
Edama works to improve the entire food system--from production to consumption--simultaneously reducing organic waste in landfills and improving the agricultural sector’s productivity.
Our team brings a diverse set of qualifications, spanning agricultural science, engineering, economics and communications. The breadth of our expertise allows us to take a more holistic approach to addressing the interconnected and complex issues of food waste, sustainability and agricultural productivity.
