FLIES- PROTEIN FOOD SOURCE FOR CHICKENS PIGS AND FISH.
Explain your idea in details:
The level of Poultry, pig and fish farming in Africa and world wide are greatly expanded and their need of protein food increases, but the sources of protein (soya beans,fish,meat,and dried animal blood ) are competitive with humans and other animals hence deprive as time goes. The idea involves production of fly larvae as a protein food source. Black soldier flies (harmless to human health) found mostly in forest are housed and after 3-4 months lay eggs in coiled tubes, from there the eggs are transferred in tanks contains either human faeces, animal blood,cow dung, etc as food sources, After hatching the grown larvae (5 days) move from foods themselves or using water they float over water, then collected, washed, boiled in water and sun dried ready for use directly as chicken and animal food and packed for selling. Can be mixed with other types of foods to complete the diet,fly larvae contains about 40% of proteins for food mixture of chicken hence better for growing chicks. The residue remains after separating larvaes with their food are used as agricultural manure for crop farming as it contains a lot of organic matter. OBJECTIVE; The main objective is to produce alternative sources of protein for chickens and animal in stead of depending much on fish and meat so as to control the competitive nature of these nutrients also to help farmers expand their farms and benefit from their farming. Also this will contribute the manure for agricultural activities means act as recycling of waste material to useful materials.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The main impacts of this technology is to improve poultry farming and fish farming in Tanzania and Africa as the sources of protein food is costful and competitive to farmers. So products will be solid at affordable prices, creating employment as the plant need workers for collecting and processing of raw materials; also the targeted groups are farmers, as the main source of raw materials from their toilets and septic tanks, cow dungs, butchers and throaters owner and waste materials which attracts flies and favor their growth and reproduction. The main measures to evaluate success is when my first products will be accepted by farmers and approved by Tanzania Food and Drugs Authority as safe for use as feed. Increase of farm products because of feeding the the chickens and fish larvae food as protein sources. Existences of greater impacts in farm products with low coast by comparing with the previous time.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The business model is simple and of low cost because involves directly farmers as raw material source and costumers of the end products. Production need a capital to setup the plant and to buy tanks for growing larva also need wire match and catching nets for housing the flies. Raw materials will be collected from different sources to the site, because the raw materials produce a bad smell the plant will be far from human settlement so as to prevent disturbances of bad smells. QUALITY OF THE PRODUCTS will be maintained through washing and boiling in water as well as sun dried and packed in a clean containers. The products will be distributed by different agents and advertising through social networks and farm deliveries. The main sources of fund are self funding, sponsors and Donner so as to start the production. Production processes will collaborates the farmers society around as the main sources of raw materials, expertise in insects, environmental conservation expertise and trade agents in distribution of products.
