Explain your idea in details:
Rangú is an analogy to the word "Rango" - a portuguese slang for "Food". The main idea of the Rangú App is to achieve all social classes but mainly people who doesn't have financial conditions to afford food in the current prices. Basically, Rangú will make partnerships with small/medium markets and negotiate the price for food that will expire in a short time. Most of the time, when the food expires these markets have to pay for companies to place this waste. The App will sell this food for really affordable prices and deliver it quickly, so it can be consumed before the expiration date. Assuming that Rangú won't be able to sell all the products, it will have also partnerships with organizations that help people in poor/street conditions and all the not-sold products will be donated (there will be studies to see what would be the maximum deadline for theses institutions to receive the products and be consumed before they expire), so the food will reach all the levels of the social pyramid
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The expected impact of the App Rangú is to create a society, at least in terms of food access, more equal. By selling food for affordable prices and also donating for people who has no financial condition at all. The implementation of Rangú will complete a process that gives equal reachability of food to all. With more people consuming products before they expire, it enhances the whole system where there is less waste and consequently less need to use of landfills.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
All the process of selling the products will be done through the Rangú App for mobile. -PRICES The key point of the idea will be getting low prices for products that Rangú will buy from his Partners. It will be possible trough negotiations that will balance the type of product and the expiration date. The App will offer a banner in the interface to all partners that agree with the terms; an especial merchandising during the donation of the products; and a chance to dispense products that will become "waste" soon. - LOGISTIC As soon as the products are negotiated, vans will withdraw it from the markets and bring to the physical stock of Rangús. They will be inputted into the app system. When a purchase is made, motorcycle couriers will delivery the products. A study will be done with the institutions of needy people to see what would be the maximum deadline to receive the products before they expire, so it can be delivered to them with the right time to be consumed -FINANCING SOURCE Initially, all the funding will be provided for the three members of the group that idealized Rangú App - Until possible further funding -COLLABORATORS Collaborators will be all the partner markets and institutions that will receive the products
