Thanks to the fish farmers purchasing Ittinsect feeds we will reach the following sustainable impact goals in 2023
Tons of upcycled material
Tons of CO2-Eq emissions reduced
Units of marine-sourced fish saved by our clients
A fish fed with Ittinsect feed has a faster and more constant growth, a stronger immune system and a lower risk of digestive system inflammation than one fed with traditional feed. The technology is patent pending.
Sustainability is profit. For the first time, the consumer can choose a fish product with zero impact on the marine environment.
Furthermore, studies confirm that an end consumer is willing to pay a 15% higher price for a sustainable fish.
Every kg of feed in the Ittinsect Natura T-line generates approximately 10% less emissions than an equivalent traditional feed.
All Ittinsect feeds have a FIFO (fish in – fish out) ratio of less than 1. By doing so, we reduce both the need to fish 30 billion small pelagics, and the total emissions of the aquaculture value chain.
Ittinsect team is made of specialists of all aspects of the aquaculture sector: fish nutrition, marine biology, biotechnology, engineering and sales. The value that keeps us together is the passion for the ocean and the need to protect it.
Forbes Under 30
Alessandro is a young entrepreneur pushed by his passion for the ocean in all his career choices.
He obtained a Master in naval architecture and marine engineering in the UK while racing internationally on sailboats.
In his early career, Alessandro worked in the ship finance sector in Switzerland, and there he realized the huge impact humans are having on the marine environment.
He set sail on a 40-day trip to reconnect with the ocean by only using sails to move on a cabinless catamaran and only eating the fish he could catch. There came the idea of replacing all the fish that is caught to produce fishmeal used in the aquaculture industry.
Alessandro decided to move back to Rome, his hometown, and establish Ittinsect with a team of young, talented marine biologists and biotechnologists.
