The PIPezi Exchange is supporting Bread - Bread is a unique solution that combines three valuable products into one asset.

A rapid response Compact Food Ration designed to provide humanitarian aid and disaster relief during local, regional and national food crisis.

Approximately 815 million people suffer from hunger worldwide, with more than 9 million people dying of hunger each year according to world hunger statistics.1 Globally, natural disasters are increasing in both frequency and severity with food shortages becoming commonplace during these events. 

Supply chain disruptions have now become chronic due to severe restrictions. Conflict related displacement is also impacting food availability, resulting in food shortages and widespread famine in many areas. Food security is now poised to be the dominant global issue in the next three years.

The Bread project

The Bread project is designed to provide rapid and widespread access to emergency meals with the intent to alleviate suffering for the people affected by food shortage events. The concept works seamlessly across borders providing support to aid agencies, sovereign nations, charities and individuals wishing to secure their food supplies or assist the needy. Whilst the Bread system has a broad multifunctional aspect in deployment and operation, it is fundamentally a compact emergency food source with unlimited shelf life.2 

The system allows emergency food stocks to remain on location for extended periods pre-empting disaster relief requirements while ownership remains in digital currency form.

The Bread food

The Bread food is currently produced as a hardened small disc 60 x 21mm in size. They are completely vegetarian and consist of the following ingredients: 

Wheat, salt, water. The ingredients are mixed, compressed, baked and dehydrated producing a hard ‘Unleavened Bread’ that is vacuum packed.

The Bread (FOOD) token as a stablecoin

The Bread token functions, as stablecoin should, by maintaining a fixed price value at $1.00 US dollar. The fixed price value is guaranteed by the direct ownership of a physical emergency meal with each and every token issued. 

Unlike other stablecoins that have no intrinsic value and risk devaluation, the Bread token always maintains value through the contractual ownership of the emergency meal rations.

The Bread food stablecoin provides a unique opportunity to own emergency food rations while enjoying the flexibility of a stable cryptocurrency with real intrinsic value. The Bread food stablecoin also provides aid agencies, sovereign nations, and individuals the opportunity to prepare themselves for food shortages and assist people in need with a rapid response meal or digital currency for exchange.
