More than Lego: WFP's Factory-in-a-box

Date Published: 

The biscuit factory-in-a-box is the latest innovation under the U.N. World Food Program’s Purchase for Progress initiative. It is composed of seven containers, 6x2.5 meters each, and complete with the usual baking equipment: ovens, mixers and conveyor belts. (..) Only high-energy biscuits of the kind WFP already provides under its school-feeding programs will be produced at the factory at first.
