Once again Snap-Fan's solar-powered fans are being put to use in food production where help is needed.
Partnering with Soldana, L-3 Communications, and the Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and Technology, Snap-Fan is the solar muscle behind the Solar Powered Food Dehydrator being introduced into Haiti.
Haiti has no problem growing enough food during the harvest season. But the food cannot be consumed quickly enough to avoid spoilage, leaving many hungry. Between 60% and 70% of all food crops are lost in any given year in Haiti. With enough food being produced, it's just a question of how to keep the food for use in the post-harvest season. Soldana has stepped up to answer that question with their Solar Powered Food Dehydrator. With 240 square feet of drying space, 100 pounds of high quality FDA approved fruit can be dried in as little as 24 to 36 hours.
By combining Soldana's innovative design with Snap-Fan's solar-powered ventilation, Haitians are provided with an easy, cost-effective and renewable method to make the most out of their bountiful harvest each year. This increases their self-sufficiency and eliminates the need to import food in the off season.
