Farmers in Borgne, Haiti have identified breadfruit as one of the most wasted agricultural products in the area because it is hard to transport, store, and preserve. It is possible to convert breadfruit into flour to address these problems, however they need a simple way to do this in an area with limited resources. Concepts of a shredding, drying, and grinding process have been created, however, these solutions require materials that are not readily available in Haiti.
The goals of this project are to create a low cost, low energy input breadfruit processor/process that will result in consistent flour quality. The project deliverables will be a working prototype to shred and grind breadfruit effectively.
