I spent much time in Third World Countries, where most have to survive without electricity. That when and where the concept came alive for me. The insects and little critters were a great problem, they wanted to share in the foods, so a portable system had to be created to separate the foods from them while drying the foods naturally. At the same time, and learning the benefits of sprouting, I wanted to create a system in which seeds that for some reason didn't sprout, could easily be washed away during the growing process, as they could spoil the rest. I have made many improvements over the years, but now I am very satisfied with the latest version. While it is now being sold in many countries, I am still looking for marketing in countries where the Food PANtrie can make life easier and more productive. Always looking for help in making them better and more useful.
