About Us

Kulisha, named after the Swahili verb “to feed,” is an innovative waste treatment process that uses black soldier fly larvae to transform organic waste into a high-quality protein base as an alternative to conventional animal feeds.

We offer an on-site, automated processing facility that takes organic waste as an input and produces sustainable insect protein as an output.
