We are actively involved in many projects to train & inform farmers on the use of our products.
Aims to address the challenges in the animal feed sector on the supply side e.g., erratic raw material availability and unstable prices, and on the demand side, unlocking the sector’s potential in using high quality feed. During the project we have managed to train 650 farmers on better farming practices.
InsectiPro’s role within the consortium is to lead research and testing on the use of BSF protein as an alternative animal protein input in feed formulation
