Yalelo breeds organic tilapia fish in Lake Kariba, Zambia, and supplies it fresh to the consumer market. Fish are fed on grains and allowed to grow in floating nets on the open water. Yalelo practises modern aquaculture methods to ensure fish reach their optimum size.
Over-fishing is a problem in Zambia (and worldwide). Yalelo is breeding and growing tilapia in a sustainable way in order to reverse this trend. Some positive outcomes will be improved food security, better local diets and larger wild fish populations.
Yalelo works closely with the local community, providing employment and supporting several development projects around Lake Kariba.
Processing and distribution in Multiple locations
- Organic tilapia packed very efficiently and effectively for quality resale
- Packed in layers of ice and transported by road
- Fish reared naturally and healthily - a good source of protein
Before the fish reach market they are first stored in a cool place where water is constantly poured on them to keep them wet. They are then kept frozen in cold rooms.
Transportation and deliveries
Once the fish are ready for the buyer, they are packed in boxes together with layers of ice and transported to the market place. Packing is very efficient and fish arrive in excellent condition. Road transport via refrigerated trucks is the most common method of transportation.
