The Manzer Partazer team

Manzer Partazer is a project based on the goodwill of people. We are a dedicated and motivated team; from the coordinators to the web and graphic designers, the lawyers, our volunteers from the University of Technology of Mauritius, and, of course, the different sponsors and partners, we are all working on a voluntary basis.

The Founders

Davide and Julia first met at the SAVE FOOD – World Conference at Düsseldorf, Germany, in May 2014. In December 2014 they founded Manzer Partazer in Mauritius sharing the same vision of a food waste reduction project to make this beautiful island more sustainable.


Julia VennCo-founder and Madagascar Coordinator
Julia started to engage herself voluntary when she was at University within the German association ‘Foodsharing e.V.’ which tackles food waste by sharing it between households or saving it directly from retailers by placing it in public food distributors.

She came to Mauritius with the plan to make use of her experience for adapting it to the Mauritian context. She is now in charge of the coordination of Manzer Partazer with a main focus on the data collection and food sharing activities.

Davide SignaCo-Founder and Director
Davide has been a food waste activist since he was a university student. He worked as project manager with different international NGOs since 1999 and from 2004 with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in a total of 11 countries across Africa, Asia, Central and South America in the fields of post-harvest losses reduction in agriculture and fisheries. He has been presenting its activities in different countries.
