Biofit Feeds Limited harnesses water hyacinth and converts it into animal feeds.
Lake Victoria produces 400,000 tonnes of freshwater hyacinth annually and this large volume has become a menace on the water surface. Dealing with the water hyacinth menace had become a seemingly insurmountable challenge for communities living near Lake Victoria. The water hyacinth infestation has cut off vital income sources by smothering other aquatic life like fish, rendering fishing grounds inaccessible, damaging fishing equipment and hindering transport by boat.
They are doing value addition to water hyacinth, turning the weed into high-quality livestock feed products.
