Mazzi was created by Global Good — a collaboration between Bill Gates and Intellectual Ventures to invent, develop, and deploy technology that improves life in developing countries. Because of this, the Mazzi family of products will be made affordable for low-income stakeholders across the dairy value chain, and any profits from Mazzi sales in developing countries will remain with our local manufacturing and distribution partners.

Millions of people suffer and die each year in developing countries from causes that humanity has the scientific and technical ability to solve. Global Good is a collaborative effort between Bill Gates and Intellectual Ventures to address this. We take on some of humanity’s toughest problems through the power of invention by drawing on resources normally reserved for commercial pursuits in the developed world.
