Amaizz is an Agritech startup creating drying and storage solutions in order to combat post-harvest losses among farmers in developing countries.
Today, on average 30%-50% of the produce grown by farmers in developing countries goes to waste. Much of these losses are due to relatively simple mishandling and the lack of resources to acquire advanced technology for drying and storage.
We developed a solution named ‘Asufa’, an innovative drying and storage facility which is suitable for numerous types of grains with no need of any electricity. Asufa is theft proof, affordable to small smallholder farmers, provides faster and more efficient drying, provides long term storage, reduces fungus and aflatoxin, easy to operate, and durable. The product was designed based on the experience and the needs of local African farmers with the help and expertise of Israeli engineers. It continues the tradition of self-reliant solutions that gives the farmer control of their own produce.
