Government of Flanders
Sustainable Agriculture

Viva Organica processes organic waste using earthworms and micro-organisms to manufacture vermicompost that is further amended with biochar and transformed into a liquid fertiliser.

Vermogrow is a 100% natural, safe, odourless, and eco-friendly organic granular fertiliser. Bio Brew is a liquid bio stimulant and organic fertiliser made from enriched compost tea brewed with premium worm castings, plant extracts, and beneficial microbes suitable for use in all crops.

Eco-inclusive Impacts

Through vermicomposting, Viva Organica processes organic waste into organic fertiliser. This not only helps reduce organic waste but also provides affordable, non-chemical farming inputs for farmers. Its nutrient-rich fertilizers improve soil fertility and drought tolerance of crops, which enhances agricultural productivity and increases food production. This addresses hunger and food security issues in sub-Saharan Africa. The enterprise also generates social impacts through employing marginalised groups such as women, youth, and people with disabilities and through community gardening.
