IGFF is a private institute doing applied research & consultancy within aquaponics, urban agriculture and the economic organization of agro food chains.

 

Aquaponics, the combined production of fish and plants, are becoming a core industry of our activities. As the Danish representative of the EU Cost action program promoting aquaponics we are working together with researchers, aqua- and horticulture businesses building up an innovative commercial aquaponics sector in and outside Europe.

 

Urban agriculture connected to aquaponics is part of our longer term investment areas.

Aquaponic food production

 

 

We are continuing the expansion of our aquaponics food division, and have established a subsidiary 'Chinamapa ApS' to be in charge of the commercial tasks of our aquaponics business. In this regard, we are in the process of setting up a 2.000 m2 aquaponics production of 25 tons of Pike Pearch and 350.000 organic herbs per year in the suburb of Copenhagen

 

On the Urban farm side we are cooperating together with Refarmed.dk to establish a 400 m2 aquaponics production as part of a 1.000 m2 roof-top farm on the roof of the large Shopping center Fields in proximity to Copenhagen Airport.

  

IGFF has the overall responsibilities of the aquaponics research facilities as well as obligations to our national and international research partners.  

Organic value chains and pro-poor development

 

IGFF has been involved in Bolivia, Brazil, China, East Africa and Egypt with capacity building and development of organic value chains promoting organic growth within export, domestic supermarkets and the tourist industry chains.  

 

We have a long-term record of operating with different types of value chains in developing and emerging countries, as well as a profound knowledge on how economic institutions and organization varies with the type of food system they operate.  

 

The experiences are being disseminated through scientific journals and books, which can downloaded via 'Publications'.
