AquaFarms Africa’s aquaponic system is a sustainable, affordable and simple soil-less alternative to traditional farming. Our low-cost 12m x 12m systems made from 90% local materials use renewable energy to allow for climate-controlled farming. This facilitates year-round harvesting and increases availability and access to food, while also producing normally imported niche products, which entices importers to purchase locally.
By sustainably providing high-value products to our target customers, we not only increase food security, but also food sovereignty as we compete with imports at better rates and quicker delivery, boosting the revenue of our urban farmers and creating decent employment for youth. The introduction of AFA in urban environments means we include urban youth in the agricultural conversation and transform cityscapes. AquaFarms Africa not only sustainably addresses accessibility to healthy and sustainable food, but also the need to boost youth employment.
