High demand, quick maturation and efficient production: These attributes of tilapia have led to rapid expansion and a very diverse market, particularly in Asia and Latin America. Producers today include not only larger operations, but many smaller farms where extended support services are crucial.
We go beyond feed production and aim to provide tilapia farmers with a more complete business solution. This includes technical support from local specialists to help you improve productivity.
Choosing the right feed
Feed characteristics such as pellet color, smell, uniformity, fines, and water stability all are important. But the key factor for any fish producer is profitability – and that depends on a whole range of factors.
We listen to individual producer needs and help to ensure that you choose cost-effective and viable feed options for each stage of fish development, maximizing feed conversion ratio (FCR) and average daily gain (ADG).
Meeting market challenges
Tilapia aquaculture is a diverse and rapidly changing industry, and it has to meet challenges that include drought, zoning regulations, shifts in market size, losses to local carnivorous species and more. Working with Cargill helps you plan more effectively for the future and achieve sustainable business growth that benefits both you and your employees.
We help small farms monitor feed performance and water quality for each fish crop, and we provide ongoing development of new products and services. Both productivity and sustainability are supported by our farm best practice services, mobile lab services and feed performance measurements – Design and Conformance (D/C) and Proof of Performance (POP).
Larger farms depend on us for the consistent production costs, fish yields and fish shape they need to meet market demands. We innovate new products for fish supply systems and work closely with end users to make sure you have the production solutions that work for your business.
