I love when I discover food that comes with a social mission. Last night I talked to Matt Blake, a Bay Area social entrepreneur who is bringing market-based solutions to address social problems overseas. In Afghanistan the most lucrative crop continues to be poppy, which is produced to supply opiates like heroin. By creating the Afghan Pepper Company, Matt is creating alternatives for Afghan farmers.
This is great example of how social business can have an impact! Check out Matt's video on Kickstarter (where he successfully funded his project) for details..
