Converting agro-waste into quality organic farming products
AgriCentric partners with both smallholder farmers and commercial scale farmers to buy their farm waste. The waste is processed into high value organic products: bio-char, bio-fertiliser, dietary supplement for livestock & fish, and bio-pesticides which are then sold back to farmers at cheap prices to enable them to engage in sustainable food production.
The enterprise further offers soil remediation services and partners with government agriculture offices to hold free Livelihood Empowerment Programmes for rural farming communities and sensitisation programmes on sustainable food production.
