Overview
Glatt Stove distributes cook stoves and fuel that do not produce smoke, to save the lives of people who still cook with biomass and charcoal. It hopes to improve the health of 3 billion people around the world and to stop them polluting and deforesting their communities.

Achievments
Glatt Stove has raised $1,4 million for manufacturing, distribution and commercialization processes. It is working with the biggest grocers in the country, which distribute to the most remote communities. Furthermore, it is working with local governments in Mexico City, Hidalgo and Puebla, and developing a special version for use by the army in natural disasters, as they are the ones to reach the affected population.

Aspirations
Reach 30% of the Mexican market over the coming year; improve production process; grow the team to better support customers; improve the branding, product placement; and start exporting.
