  • Improve the nutrition of rural households, particularly children.
  • Raise household revenues through sale and distribution of groundnut-based food products for local markets.
  • Improve productivity, and reduce the intense daily labor typically endured by women.
  • Empower farm families in ways that enable them to strengthen their links to markets and manage their farms as enterprises.
  • Strengthen local presence by transferring technical and manufacturing expertise to African organizations.
  • Compatible Technology International (CTI), a St. Paul, Minnesota nonprofit, was founded in 1981 by a group of food scientists, missionaries and research engineers to address the post-harvest needs of the food chain. The team sought ways in which their knowledge, expertise and human kindness might help the poor in developing countries to resolve food problems and increase food supply by using local resources. CTI's mission is to improve the lives of people in developing countries by designing food and water technologies that are sustainable and appropriate to local cultures, and by collaborating with in-country organizations to identify needs and to achieve widespread use of our technologies to relieve hunger and poverty. CTI has extended its work to many parts of Africa, Central America, the Caribbean, India and Bangladesh, where its post-harvest processing devices are used on a daily basis.
