Agro Iris has cracked a challenging problem: how to give farmers with less than 5ha of land an adequate income off their land by drying the fruit instead of selling it fresh. They have an innovative method of fruit processing, where essentially the farmer only has to plant and harvest the fruit.
Agro Iris brings the mobile fruit drier, takes the dried fruit, packages it and sells it. In that process, they manage to pay the farmer twice as much for their fruit, then other buyers would.
They’re looking for €15.000 in working capital, because they want to expand their production and broaden the number of products.
