Since 2014 approximately 20 Million Metric Tons of the brown algae sea weed known as Sargassum has been inundating the Caribbean coast annually, costing tourism interest over US$6 Billion Dollars in lost revenue and another US$120 Million in clean up costs. Awganic Inputs processes this Sargassum combining it will locally available organic agro-processing waste to produce a feed that is targeted to Goat industry as a beach head.
Data from 2014 says Jamaica imported US$15 Million worth of Goat meat with yearly increases , with this the Government of Jamaica has seen it fit to increase the national goat herd from 700,000 to 3 Million.
