Best farming conditions in the heart of Brazil
«I have never seen such ideal farming conditions.»
Tobías Roman, Head of Operations Tilabras
BRAZIL WITH UNTAPPED POTENTIAL
LARGEST WATER RESERVES
Brazil is an agricultural giant and an emerging aquaculture player, uniquely positioned to meet the global market’s growing demand for fish. With a 16 percent share of the world’s freshwater resources, Brazil offers unrivalled conditions for fresh water fish farming. No country in the world has more fresh water reserves than Brazil.
In Latin America, Brazil is currently the leader in aquaculture production, with tilapia aquaculture accounting for the largest share.
BRAZIL WITH COST ADVANTAGE
LOWEST FEED COST
Brazil is the world’s second-largest producer of corn and soybean – the most commonly used ingredients of fish feed. Instead of importing grain from overseas, Brazilian aquaculture farmers source local feed made of local grain. Brazilian aquaculture farmers benefit from the lowest feed cost worldwide, which makes high-quality tilapia even more affordable.
Tilabras actively partners with local farmers in the region of Selvíria, motivating them to convert cow pasture into biodynamic, non-GMO grain production. This not only creates jobs in the region, it also enhances the biological diversity.
LOCATION OF TILABRAS
PERFECT PLACE FOR TILAPIA FARMING
Tilabras’ choice of location builds on the outstanding work of Gérard Moss, who collected water samples by seaplane from 1,170 different places across Brazil. Supported by renowned experts in fish farming, Tilabras found in Selvíria, in the southwest state of Mato Grosso do Sul, the perfect location for tilapia aquaculture.
Plenty of fresh water, a healthy water current, a perfect temperature range across the entire year, lots of oxygen, and the possibility of on-site processing give Tilabras a unique competitive advantage. The continuous flow of 16,000 cubic meters of pristine water per second, as well as being far away from urban centers and industrial complexes, give the fish the perfect environment for a healthy life.
This allows Tilabras to offer consumers a naturally better, healthier product. You can taste the difference!
