InspiraFarms, is a leading provider of on- and off-grid cold storage solutions for High- Value Fresh Produce across Africa. Currently, less than 4% of agri-businesses have access to an effective cold chain. For the rest, the Post-Harvest Losses (PHL) are enormous, as is the impact on the climate.
InspiraFarms designs on-farm and near farm pack-house and cold rooms that reduce Post Harvest Losses, maintain the quality of produce and therefore increasing shelflife, using energy-efficient technologies and embedded IoT to customers deep knowledge about their produce. This combination translates into agri-businesses selling more produce, at better quality with lower OPEX, and have access to data never before possible to change their bottom line. InspiraFarms also offers a range of financial products aligned to agri-businesses cash cycles to help lower the upfront CAPEX burden. This offering is backed by a team of experts who use a high-touch approach to design systems specifically to client needs to ensure rapid ROI is achieved.
