In 2010, Nnaemeka Ikegwuonu, a Nigerian social entrepreneur, won a Rolex Award for Enterprise for creating a radio station advising smallholder farmers.

In a country ranked 107th out of 113 countries on the Global Food Security Index – and where more than 88 million people face food insecurity while 12 per cent are undernourished – this wastage is a huge problem.

His solution is helping farmers to keep their produce fresh until it can be sold.
