Investing In A Blue-Green Economy

As global seafood consumption increases, producing the volumes necessary to maintain supply is a big concern in aquaculture.

Quality, food safety and traceability have become critical factors for anyone who wants to successfully market any kind of food produce.

For this reason, simply increasing production volumes alone is not enough to increase business revenue. An additional challenge is adding value to the end product in order to obtain adequate price margins.

Meeting the consumer’s demand for safe and traceable food produce

At the same time an environmentally friendly approach to aquaculture is no longer just an ideological standard. It has become mandatory to maintain production licenses and commercial viability but even more so than in agriculture, the complete elimination of harmful substances such as pesticides and antibiotics is not that easy to realise.

Benchmark’s extensive knowhow as a pioneer and innovator makes us the ideal partner to come up with blue-green solutions for clean and responsible aquaculture.

Investing In The Fish Production Of Tomorrow

Philosofish by Bitsakos is one of Benchmark Nutrition’s European customers who has recently managed to double its yearly proceeds. The secret to this success: a thorough professionalisation of their entire operations, funded with new working capital. Benchmark sees this phenomenon worldwide as aquaculture has developed into an attractive industry for investors, who realise its enormous growth potential.

Investing in aquaculture is investing in a future proof production supply of protein for human consumption. A market that will keep on growing for many decades to come.

By expanding the hatchery and redesigning its set-up for a more controlled way of working, Philosofish by Bitsakos can now produce more and stronger fry. The installation of additional sea cages enabled them to double their grow-out yield in a year’s time.
