Fresh and locally grown organic shrimps during 365 days of the year.
The project of our indoor farm is designed considering the reuse of 98% of the water and zero waste management.
Our company, in cooperation with a foreign consultant for shrimp farming, developed an indoor shrimp farm project. This project involves growing Pacific white shrimp using an innovative method.
Apart from the commercial interest, the above-mentioned facility will contribute to the development of intensive aquaculture in Georgia. At this stage, our company has an agreement with a private investor who will provide 70% of the capital needed for the implementation of the project.
