For Rivoli Group AG, sustainability is also the focus of its advisory and participatory activities in the agriculture and the aquaculture sector. We pay close attention to the environmental compatibility of the products and processes in case of a potential commitment to an agricultural company. Our detailed market knowledge, especially in the field of aquaculture production, provides our clients and partners with a trustworthy basis for all projects.
We can see how the environmental awareness of people, especially in the western countries, has strongly increased – and thus also the demand for products with an organic seal manufactured under fair conditions. In addition, there is a continuing trend towards healthy nutrition, the superfood.
This growing demand is, however, restricted by a limited supply, since ecologically manufactured products not only require more time but are also costlier to produce than conventional products. The investment experts of Rivoli Group AG positively assess the following implications: Both the agricultural sector and the aquaculture industry are sustainable growth markets. For our investments, they represent two long-term attractive future sectors.
Growth engine in the aquaculture sector
The global fish market is characterized by a stagnating or declining supply due to reduced catch quotas, overfishing of individual species, contaminated waters, and transport and environmental problems. At the same time, demand keeps growing. This market situation can be offset by aquaculture. 40% of the world demand are already being covered by aquaculture today – and rising: In 2030, more than half of all seafood products consumed will come from aquaculture.
Growth driver in organic agriculture
Organic agriculture is committed to preserving soil fertility and animal welfare and dispensing with harmful chemicals, to name only a few aspects. It is thus characterized by sustainability, while at the same time offering a great potential for growth. The main reason for this is the growing popularity of organic products, which attach great importance to regionality and reject the use of chemical plant protection and genetic engineering. These highly value-oriented, sustainable end-consumers ultimately represent loyal customers for producers and retailers. They guarantee constant earnings in this attractive market.
