Harnessing Organic Waste to Support the Food Value Chain

Established in 2021, NeoFarm is a Senegalese start-up that aims to bio-convert organic waste with insects to manufacture high quality input for animal and plant growth. The company has established a vertical farm in Senegal where it breeds and rears the black soldier fly (BSF) in optimal climatic conditions.

NeoFarm operates through a circular model where it collects organic waste from localities, uses the collected organic waste and its proprietary processes to rear and transform the BSF larvae into a high nutritional value protein powder and high fat oil for animal feed and an organic fertilizer for agriculture.
