Inefficient use of farming resources and malnutrition are banes in Africa. We are a Future of Protein venture, tackling both by promoting sustainable insect (Palm Weevil larvae) farming in Africa, mitigating the significant climatic impact of livestock farming. Our project works to:
1. Reduce the over-reliance on livestock for protein in Africa through establishment of larvae farms.
2. Develop an insect-protein derived ready-to-use therapeutic food for the treatment of childhood malnutrition.
3. With Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning in a cognitive assistant promote smart use of resources, and maximum returns on crop and livestock farms, by allowing farmers seamlessly track farming input, stock, output and mine farming data for actionable insights all from their mobile phone with SMS
UNIQUE SELLING POINTS
Our venture is the first to use conversational AI in the Agric industry in Africa, we are also aiming to be the world’s first ever producers of alternate RUTF from insects.
