About Sapient:

We are a social business catalysing sustainable environmental and social impact actions in our society, through multiple projects and collaborations. Sapient Social & Environmental Enterprises was founded in 2016 and consists of a team of bright, young inspired individuals from across the globe who dedicate themselves to tackle food waste, renew democracy, provide local green energy solutions, and help other social businesses in their path to positive impact. 


About Healthy & Affordable:

H&Aff is an independent social business from Sapient whose aim is to reduce the amount of food being wasted in Amsterdam, starting from its collection and ending in its new market launch. The unwanted food is first collected from food suppliers and dehydrated. Our new product is then ready to be repackaged and finally put on the market again. All the profit that we earn from the product sales is invested back into the fight against food waste in Amsterdam.
