A young entrepreneur and a start-up originating from IFWA

See here two videos (link 1, link 2) presenting Noël Obognon and his company, Agro-Eco Services, a start-up that he founded with friends after he completed his Master at the University of Abomey-Calavi, in the framework of IFWA

Their main product is Maggot-Compost, a compost made of residues of fly larvae production. They also sell the fly larvae as poultry feed ingredient.

If you know a way to support the company, don’t hesitate.
