Gift Lubele, Co-Founder & COO

Unlike solutions from outside the continent, Kudoti is very well adapted to operate in the low-tech environment that exists in Africa and other emerging markets. Additionally, what makes Kudoti Unique is:

• Multi-stream (e-waste, plastics, paper, glass & bottles, metals, etc.), our platform works with any waste materials.
• End-to-end reverse supply chain with vertical integrations (payments, logistics, financing, incentives, contract management)
• Digital Product designed specifically for recycling use cases
• Intelligent matchmaking and optimizations for maximizing value of waste
• System is modular & API-based therefore highly customizable to each client

Our goal at Kudoti is to leverage our digital waste infrastructure solution to enable emerging markets to fully benefit from the power of the circular economy.

Kudoti helps FMCG brands meet their sustainability goals by improving their waste collection rates and provides them with data to support with decision making and sustainable material procurement.
