Kitchen Hub is the first ever food incubator in Myanmar, providing facilities to develop or manufacture food products. At Kitchen Hub, we provide co-working space, training facilities, food lab for product development and a simple production facility for small batch productions.
Shan State is a region with high potential in agriculture. However, at present the lack of proper logistics and fragmented value chains make it difficult to link the supply and demand for many products. In harvesting season, the prices for fruits and vegetables are minimal, making it often not viable even to bring them to the market and a lot of the produce is lost. Also, there is a lack of local companies that are able to increase the added value of agricultural products in the Shan State. Therefore, a large potential for value addition, job creation and development are not utilized.
In order to addressed those challenges, Kitchen Hub will provide know-hows on agro-processing and food safety by empowering the local communities with resources required to manufacture high quality value added food products.
