Intellecap, TRIF Launch Platform to Promote Circularity in Agriculture

To help address the challenges faced by smallholder farmers, businesses and consumers, Intellecap and Transform Rural India Foundation (TRIF) today announced the launch of IAFS-CAP, a platform to promote circularity in production, processing and distribution of agriculture products such as food, fibre and fuel.

Circularity in agriculture is about optimising the system and is based on four basic principles — arable land should be used primarily to produce plant biomass for human consumption; by-products from food production, processing and consumption should be recycled back in the food system; adoption of the principles of regenerative agriculture and finally promoting consumption at low trophic levels.
