The world's population is still growing and is expected to be almost 10 billion people on Earth by 2050. The rapid growth rate can be also seen in urbanization. Up to 70% of the world's population is expected to live in cities by 2050. All these individuals will need to be fed. However, today more than ever, we are facing many challenges in food production, especially in the field of agriculture and fisheries.
The most common problems associated with food production for current and future generations include efficient use of agricultural land, protection of natural resources, elimination of pesticides, herbicides and other chemical additives, sustainability, nutritional food balance, climate change, transport costs and carbon footprint, overfishing, ecosystem restoration, low food self-sufficiency and food security.
The ongoing COVID-19 has a significant impact on food security. There is an interest and an effort to ensure maximum food security, reduce waste and give everyone access to fresh and quality products. The situation around coronavirus puts great pressure on all levels in the supply chain (e.g. logistics). Same with individual countries facing the problem of low food self-sufficiency. Consumer behavior has also changed, with people being more interested in what they eat and where their food comes from.
All these facts confirmed that when we were founded in 2014, we went in the right direction and, as then, we are still responding to the current global challenges in the field of food production. Our intention is to bring to the Czech market quality, safe, fresh, and especially local salmon and leafy vegetables. And that is why we choose Aquaponics for our project.
It is a modern and sustainable way of food production, which uses CEA (Control Environment Agriculture) or controlled environment. This means that Aquaponics is independent of weather, climatic conditions and seasonality. All parameters associated with cultivation and breeding are controlled, managed and monitored 24/7, thus eliminating the risk of losses. This unique recirculation system ensures year-round production without the need for artificial pesticides, herbicides, or other chemicals. Aquaponics combines fish farming and vegetable growing, where water from fish farming, which is very rich in nutrients, is further used as a source of organic fertilizer for plant growing.
On the project, we cooperate with the world's leading experts in fish farming in recirculation systems (RAS) - Aqua Maof and vegetable growing in vertical farms - Netled. As a result, both parts of the technology can work not only together but also separately. By connecting them and complementing each other, a number of synergy effects are created, which increase the efficiency, environmental friendliness and economic side of the entire project.
Our mission is to bring to the Czech market modern highly productive aquaponic technology combining fish farming and vegetable growing, including technology for processing into innovated and new products, which will contribute to higher self-sufficiency of the Czech Republic in the field of food production.
The priority is to offer customers the most fresh, safe and quality product from a Czech local source, which is both sustainable and environment friendly.
Our goal is to gain a 10% share of the Czech fish market (20,000 tons of fish per year) by 2028 and to produce at least 8,500 tons of vegetables per year.
The mission of taneco a.s. is to bring to the Czech market modern highly productive aquaponic technology combining fish farming and vegetable growing, including technology for processing into innovative and new products, which will contribute to higher self-sufficiency of the Czech Republic in the field of food production.
