Cape Town based company AgriProtein has been named among just two companies hailing from Africa in the Global Cleantech 100, a list of the 100 companies best positioned to solve the future’s clean-tech challenges.
This is an amazing achievement, especially given the fact that the company was established only a decade ago, in 2018, in Phillipi.
AgriProtein is a waste-to-protein solution provider that uses black soldier fly larvae to turn food waste into insect protein, used in fish and livestock feed…
Sustainability is at the heart of the company. One of their products is a substitute for fishmeal. For every tonne used, it allows three tonnes of fish to remain in our oceans.
The company also says their new standard 250 tonne per day waste bio conversion factories will have a material impact on local landfill sites. Each plant will divert over 90,000 tonnes a year of organic waste from stretched landfill operations.
From a humble shed in Phillipi, AgriProtein has expanded globally in just a few years, with operations across the world.
In addition to being selected to the top 100 three years in a row, this innovative company was also selected as one of Time Magazine’s “Genius Companies” in 2018.
