Elevating Food Safety and Farmers' Income through Science and Open-Source Technology
14:30 - 15:00
HasiruAqua is a startup that is committed to providing next-generation technology to the agriculture and aquaculture ecosystem under low-cost or affordable business models that enrich the lives of farmers and consumers. Our two-fold mission is to improve the lives of farmers through economic transformation and to improve the quality of nutrition that citizens consume.
We've been working on revolutionizing the way of cultivating and consuming fish.Current practices of harvesting from natural sources are not only causing severe ecological damage but are also unsustainable and leading to reduced supply and increased pricing. HasiruAqua cultivates safe, hygienic fish by partnering with farmers and using technology. We offer farmers a "Full-Stack Fish Farming" service that helps them through the entire cultivation journey. We sell this produce to distributors, exporters and D2C brands at competitive rates and share profits with the farmers. Thus we are able to create an endless supply of farmed fish and help the farmer increase his annual income.
Integrating open mapping tools we have mapped 20k ponds which can help grow 20,000 tons of fish and other aquaculture products per year and increase the farmer income by 45% year on year. Combining Open Street Mapping tools and Hasiru Aqua technology data we can provide Anticipatory Action for Disaster Mitigation for farmers which will help reduce the risk of losing produce.
