AgriLife uses a zero-waste circular system that is a novel solution to realize environmentally sustainable, climate-resilient insect protein production that is less dependent on land and water and can adapt to the climate.

Through the use of Insects; we provide sustainable, adaptable and cost-efficient alternative sources of animal protein for and aqua-feed, to keep a sustainable framework, we are breeding high quality insects on an industrial scale. At AgriLife, we utilize low-tech solutions to tackle the food insecurity and waste problem in Tanzania.
