About

Did you know?

  • 1/5 people suffer from starvation (<1600kc/day) in Africa

  • An average smallholding family in Kenya earns $1.4 per day

  • The Paris Climate Agreement challenges us to limit global to 1.5 degrees celsius 

  • Slash and burn agriculture techniques contributed to the 136,000ha of natural forest lost in 2020 

  • 60% of sub-Saharan Africa consists of small hold farmers (23% GDP comes from agriculture)

​Here at BIOSORRA, we are driven by dual goals; to boost agricultural output while removing carbon from the atmosphere. In doing so, we tackle some of the world’s most pressing issues, such as climate change, deforestation, starvation and poverty. We want to provide solutions to these problems by helping local farmers in sub-Saharan Africa increase their yield, and capture carbon in the process. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact in all our endeavours

Our Product

Biochar

We provide a soil improver, BIOCHAR, to boost your crop yield and replenish your soil.

Farming

One Step at a time

At BIOSORRA, we are dedicated to providing yield increases for farmers in Kenya. Currently, average yields are not at their potential, but through cooperation and community empowerment we hope to change this. We are striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.

Helping the Community

Climate & Socio-economical benefits

We aim to promote opportunities for smallholders and farming cooperatives. Biochar improves farmers' livelihoods and increases average food production.

Sequesters CO2

Meet the goals set by the Paris Agreement

Biochar does not only increase crop yields through soil enhancement, but also sequesters carbon and reduces CO2 emission in the atmosphere. If you find our sustainability strategy in line with the vision of your company please contact us. We are able to offset your CO2 emissions.
