HI Greg,

coincidentally I have mailed the infomail@idea this week with some outline details of a very unique low technology we have developed, all the info should be very useful to yourself. This work outlines the penetration we have achieved in providing plant disease protection here in the UK.

Essentially this work is closely aligned with other programmes associated with providing BoP solutions across many other areas of need

Our UK team have created a technology specifically for point of use manufactured  almost entirely from recycled materials, with each treatment requiring minimal prior skills other than follow basic oral instruction

Among many options is to manufacture commercially competitive products for street vendors to compete with  the likes of Detol, Clorox and many proprietary surface cleaning products.

Its remarkable simplicity overcomes many factors related to scale, by focusing on providing a very basic training package, and replication through peer to peer training.

Opportunities to involve brand leaders with zero or minimal market penetration would benefit by collaboration in providing local facilities and promotional media.

I welcome any interested parties, including yourself to consider how involvement in taking this approach to BoP problems many  be beneficial ways until now not so evident.

best regards
