Zambia is home to a large and diverse meat industry. However, much of it is wasted. The country has the opportunity to lead the way in reducing food waste on the continent, and this can be done by recycling meat products. A Zambian meat entrepreneur, Mr. Kalusha Bwalya, has started a company that recycles old meat products into new ones. This helps reduce food waste and cuts down on Africa’s carbon footprint. Zambia also benefits from this initiative because it gets new jobs and income from the recycled products.
What Meat is Being Proven to be Waste Free?
Many people are unaware of the fact that meat in Africa is often wasted. This is due in part to cultural practices and beliefs, as well as a lack of education about proper food handling and storage. However, there are individuals in Africa who are tackling this problem head on by creating innovative meat products that are waste free.
The Zambian meat entrepreneur, Blessing Chishimba, is one such individual. His company, Meat Free Africa, produces meat products that use plant-based proteins to replace animal-based proteins. This not only reduces the amount of food waste being produced in Africa, but it also helps to reduce environmental pollution.
Chishimba’s story underscores the importance of companies like Meat Free Africa. He started his business eight years ago after he became deeply unsatisfied with the state of food waste in his country. Today, Meat Free Africa employs over 70 people and generates an annual revenue of over $10 million USD. Chishimba’s success shows that there is potential for businesses working to reduce food waste to generate significant social and economic benefits.
Africa is one of the world’s most food-insecure regions, and this problem is only going to get worse in the coming years. One Zambian meat entrepreneur is trying to help reduce Africa’s food waste by turning it into something valuable: meat. Robert Kabwata started his business, Mboko Meat Company, after noticing that a lot of the animals he was buying from local farmers were ending up being wasted. Now, through Mboko Meat Company, he is able to turn these unwanted animals into high quality meat products that are sold all over Zambia and beyond. This innovative business model not only helps to reduce Africa’s food waste; it also helps Zambian farmers earn an income while helping to improve the quality of life for their families.
