AgriQ & Automations mission is to reduce post harvest losses in Africa which is estimated at 45% of the produce harvested. We will achieve this by providing affordable and efficient cold storage solution to smallholder farmers to extend the shelf-life of their horticultural produce thus improving food security in the continent and increasing the farmers income.
My team is made of experienced farmers with a background in Mechatronic Engineering which strategically positions us to solve the challenges faced by smallholder farmers in Africa. We believe in empowering smallholder farmers through providing technological solutions that will improve their farming methods.Through our cold storage solution, farmers will no longer be left vulnerable to sell their produce at throw away prices to unscrupulous brokers in desperate attempt to avoid total loss.
