Skhirat, Morocco (IINA) - Moroccan researcher Adnane Remmal was announced winner of the 2015 Innovation Prize for Africa (IPA), which carries a prize money of US$100 000, Morocco World News reported citing the African Press Organization (APO).
In a ceremony hosted by the African Innovation Foundation (AIF) in collaboration with the ministry of industry, trade, investment and digital economy in Skhirat, Remmal was awarded the IPA in recognition of his research that provides solutions to farmers to improve livestock production whilst taking into account consumer health needs.
Remmal impressed the expert panel of judges, competing with 10 innovations spanning the health, environment, technology and agricultural sectors.
He developed an anti-microbial formula that will reduce health hazards in livestock, preventing the transmission of multi-resistant germs and carcinogens to human being through consumption of milk, eggs and meat.
On the occasion, Remmal said: “My innovation provides farmers with solutions to improve their production; it is cost effective and can be easily adopted, giving farmers increased benefits without the side effects of anti-biotics.”
The IPA 2015 Awards ceremony was attended by more than 400 people that included high level African dignitaries, ministers, ambassadors, AIF partners, past IPA winners, venture capitalists, innovators, entrepreneurs, local and international media, and young people.
