The solar food network (www.solarfood.org) was established in 2006 with the financial support of WISIONS. The project's aim is to provide ideas and examples of food processing with sustainable energy sources in developing countries. So far it has been a successful network, with over 200 registered members from more than 40 countries. The website continuously attracts visitors and new registrations. No fees are charged for registration.
The main objective of this short-term support was to update the website's practice module, making it more attractive and informative for visitors to the site. To reach this aim the template for uploading project data has been updated and a selection of good practice examples from SEPS projects and other projects have been added to the website.
Overall, the website has been improved with audio-visual material such as images and videos that now provide visitors with ideas and successful examples of harvesting solar energy for the commercial production of food products.
