Livestock and Environmental health
Taking notice of the growing water hyacinth problem, Biofit was founded in 2017 by four researches to not only harvest the invasive weed, but to process it and produce animal feed products such as hyacinth livestock cake, dairy meal, poultry mash, fish pellets and pig mash among others. We anticipate the management of water hyacinth in African lakes and restoration of lake productivity. We also hope to create job opportunities and raise living standards of our small holder farmers.
Water hyacinth is a free floating plant that can double rigorously and capture an entire water surface . Since 1970, it has covered more than 20,000 ha of water surface in Lake Victoria and other rivers. This has resulted into; hindrance of water transport, contamination of the lake and decline in fish population and fishing activities.
Our team came up with the idea of using water hyacinth as a raw material in manufacturing livestock feed. We have carried out several international and local laboratory tests on our products and they have been approved as safe for animal consumption.A pilot study on dairy animals and poultry, was able to record an average 30% increase in production and 20% reduction in cost of feeding.
Our approach is to promote small scale farming through provision of quality innovative agricultural products and services at the best competitive prices in a healthy environment.
