Greatlakes feeds is a for profit social enterprise, working with fish farmers along the shore of lake victoria .—by enabling them to make money in fish farming. We manufacture low-cost high quality fish feeds that enable farmers to grow and sell their fish to the local community at affordable prices, thus enabling them to properly feed and educate their children, and plan for their futures.
Greatlakes feeds does direct sales to cage fish farmers and also sells the feeds through local agri- shops, and we are also partnering with non-profit agencies to reach and educate the fish farmers on appropriate method of fish feeding and general fish farming techniques .
Over 500 famers have already used Greatlakes feeds and many more are joining each month.
There is an urgent need to combat poverty, inequality, and hunger in Nyanza. Despite the region being at the shore of lake Victoria, and the main food of the people being fish, fish is still unaffordable to the majority, a great number of people do fishing as the main economic sustenance, but due to the fish scarcity, poverty and malnutrition still persist.
We aim to set all cage and pond farmer we work with on a positive trajectory so that once they embark on fish farming, they can make money and provide for their family.
After years of research, we have proven that our low-cost, high-quality, locally formulated feeds are the solutions to our fish farmers who aim for fast fish growth at lower cost. Fish farmers no longer dependent on imported feeds or high cost feed that have for a long time hindered the fish farming growth in nyanza. Farmers can now produce fish more affordably and are also able to sell to the local community and affordable prices , thus results in improved food and income sustainability throughout the year to the local community.
