How CASA and Lenziemill are working together

Project title: Promoting the viability of investment in feed manufacturing

CASA support for Lenziemill sought to demonstrate the commercial viability of floating fish feed manufacturing. Lenziemill sought to pioneer the manufacturing of floating fish feed in the country and aims to attract sustained investments into the sector. Some 1,200 fish farmers were identified by the project. CASA assisted Lenziemill to map out potential feed buyers and their estimate demand for feed
CASA supported Lenziemill to produce an investment profile for the AGRF DealRoom in 2022 and brokered their participation in the event
