Investment Opportunity

We have designed and developed a container that prevents insect and rampants reaching the food or drinks contained inside.

Join me and lets make history.

The market for the product is huge in Africa and other parts of the world, where people do not have access to electricity and do not use refrigerators etc. Nyope SafePlus® enables us to keep safe what we eat or drink. It does not require any chemical repellents, energy or batteries.

Nyope SafePlus® is a product that prevents insects and rampants accessing the content of the top container. Nyope SafePlus® is a combination of two containers joined by Safe plus pillar that prevents insect and rampants accessing the container containing our food or consumables. It is made of Plastic or other material. No electricity, energy or chemicals are used, just a bit of water, cooking oil, vinegar, or safe repellent liquid and our consumables are safe.

Nyope SafePlus® ensures the safety of our food out of the refrigerator or sealed container. Keeping food or leftovers, direct or indirect consumables, medicine and etc. if we do not have fridge, or if we are away from the fridge is problematic. It is a big issue for people in poor rural places or people who do not have a refrigerator at all. When our food is out of the refrigerator or sealed container it is exposed to pests, insects, rats and other rodents. We are at risk of exposure to these pests when we are camping, picnicking or making a Braai.

Energy alone is not sufficient for creating the conditions for economic growth, but it is certainly necessary. It is impossible for people who don’t have access to electricity to use a refrigerator and it is impossible for people living in poor countries who have electricity to have a refrigerator. Access to electricity is particularly crucial to human development as electricity is, in practice, indispensable for certain basic activities, such as lighting, running of household appliances refrigeration to keep our food, but what about those without access, especially in the poorest countries!

Target market: Nearly everyone in such poor countries and regions
