Neovia becomes the majority shareholder of Acui-T
25 November 2016
Neovia strengthens its aquaculture range of services and now stands as a majority shareholder of Acui-T: a water treatment specialist and recognised aquaculture solution integrator. Established in 2005, Acui-T has developed an aquaculture consultancy and technological solution integration activity. This company, based in Nantes (France), has leading expertise in water treatment and focuses on saving energy in water production and treatment processes.
Hubert de Roquefeuil, CEO of Neovia, underlines that "Neovia increase in shareholding in Acui-T will allow the company to strengthen its global range of services in aquaculture products and solutions, a sector that is experiencing a strong growth at world level, particularly in South America and Asia where Neovia already benefits from strong positions. In addition, this partnership is a concrete answer to the challenge of sustainable growth that the aquaculture industry is currently facing."
Aquaculture: one of the mains solutions to the nutritional challenges of tomorrow
The growth of the world population (Latin America, Africa, Asia) and the rising standards of living will result in a 60% increase in world production of animal proteins by 2040. During this period, aquaculture production, which currently represents 4% of world production (41 million tonnes), will grow by 450% as it is a solution adapted to emerging markets with limited purchasing power (Africa, Asia, etc.) thanks to a high nutritional conversion rate.
Neovia: a holistic approach to aquaculture
On the aquaculture market, the interaction between the animal (fish, prawns, etc.) and the environment (water) is fundamental and permanent. This is why Neovia has defined a holistic approach to aquaculture from feed to the management of fish ponds (quality, water system management) to ensure profitable and quality production that respects the environment. Neovia's majority shareholding in Acui-T fully meets this strategy and complements its global range of services.
