Food

Feeding billions of extra mouths poses an unprecedented challenge to human ingenuity.

Home \ Food

Global population growth means that food production needs to increase by 70% by 2050. It’s time to rethink how we grow and consume our food. If done right, agriculture and aquaculture can provide nutritious food for all, while generating decent incomes to support and protect rural development and the environment.

WHAT WE DO

Improving aquaculture

World population is expected to grow to about 9 billion by 2050. Aquaculture has become the fastest growing food-producing sector, but productivity is already highly stressed by excessive fishing pressure, growing organic pollution, toxic contamination, and climate change.

Calix AQUA-Cal+ is a water conditioner that safely improves water condition, reduces stress on animals and leads to increased harvest weight and survival rates, while reducing energy costs and protecting the environment.

Calix BOOSTER-Mag is a revolutionary agricultural solution for increased yield, more efficient fertiliser usage, insect / pest management, and fungal control, while protecting people and the earth.
