Chanzi use Black Soldier Fly Larvae to convert food waste into nutritious protein for animal feed. Founder and COO, Sune Mushendwa, an architect by profession, began experimenting with these insects 4 years ago. He set out with the goal of finding a sustainable protein for animal feed which would reduce the industry’s over dependence on environmentally ruinous fish and soya bean meal.

Chanzi have since made significant additions to the management team in the form of Engineering and Entomological expertise, expanded operations at the pilot site and recently constructed another full sized facility in Arusha.

We have construction projects up and running for sites in Kenya and Zanzibar and are now at the stage where we want to take our profitable and functioning model to other areas in East Africa with similar organic waste management problems.
