Sea fish without sea - Aquaponics

Do you need the sea or the ocean to breed fish? Thanks to Aquaponics this is no longer the case. This technology combines conventional aquaculture with hydroponics, making it possible to produce fish and leafy vegetables practically anywhere. The world's largest plant of this kind is located in the Coulee region, more precisely in Hixton, Wisconsin, USA.

Vertical farming rethought: The start-up Unfold focuses on the development of new seed varieties

The new start-up Unfold of Leaps by Bayer, the impact investment unit of Bayer AG and Temasek, a global investment firm based in Singapore, focuses on vertical farming. However, the focus is not on infrastructure development, but on the genetic potential of vertical farms. The start-up is the only company of its kind and develops new seed varieties from the genes of vegetable plants. These are then combined with cultivation recommendations for the special conditions in multi-storey greenhouses. The aim is to set new standards in quality, efficiency and sustainability in vertical farming.

Commentary: The SAMs Report “Towards a Sustainable Food System” bites the hand that feeds us!

One of the great challenges at the moment is the governance of our food systems. The European Commission launched the "Farm to Fork Strategy“ which is at the heart of the European Green Deal. The SAMs Report “Towards a Sustainable Food System” played an important role for that strategy.

Justus H.H. Wesseler,  Professor and Chair Agricultural Economics and Rural Policy Group, Wageningen University, The Netherlands and his colleague Professor Kai P. Purnhagen, Professor and Chair for Food Law, University of Bayreuth, and Co-Director of the Institute for Food law, wrote a critical comment on the SAMs Report “Towards a Sustainable Food System” in the European Law Blog.

They claim its proposed impact on the food system and its potential for implementation is running short and that the recommendations undermine the freedom of EU citizens, which includes the individual freedom to choose the food they like and the meaning they attach. With their propositions, the autors of the SAMs Report risk the imposition of a single food standard on EU citizens, while neutralising a major characteristic of Europe: its rich cultural diversity of food.

Commentary: "What do you think the Corona pandemic has and has had on the development and customer acceptance of alternative proteins and what is your attitude towards it?"

A mega boost for alternative proteins through Corona? No, because crises make people more conservative - and involuntarily meatless

"Whether experiences of crisis make people more courageous? That would be a bold thesis, and probably also an unhistorical one. You make conservative. You can see it in the approval rates for parties. People leave parties like the AfD on the side of the road and vote bourgeois."

With this introduction, in this issue of our newsletter, Jan Grossarth takes the floor on alternative prteine. He is a book author and management and communications consultant with his company Goldfeder. During his time as editor at the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, he was already concerned with the topics of nutrition and food production.

Boom in alternative proteins

These are incredible figures, as reported by the Good Food Institute (GFI) in its latest report dated 13 May 2020: 930 million US dollars were invested in alternative protein companies in the first quarter of 2020 alone. This means that the first quarter of 2020 has already cracked the industry's successful previous year: in 2019, the companies were able to win 824 million US dollars for the development of their alternative protein products.

Tesvolt Press Release: Tesvolt Pover Storage reduces energy cost in fish farming

Wittenberg, 12 November 2019 The Norwegian fish farming company Kvarøy is using a Tesvolt bulk storage tank on its salmon farm off the island of Selsøyvær in the North Sea. On the floating work platform, the lithium batteries with a total storage capacity of 158 kilowatt hours (kW) reduce the operating time of the diesel generators from 24 to only three hours a day. When rearing a generation of salmon, which takes about 18 months, the company thus saves between 150,000 and 200,000 euros and reduces CO2 emissions. The battery system was developed, supplied and installed by the German commercial storage manufacturer Tesvolt together with its Norwegian partner company Kverneland Energi to meet the individual requirements on the fish farm.

When acoustic waves freeze food

Some foods can be wonderfully deep-frozen - many types of vegetables or rolls of all kinds, for example. Others, however, are very sensitive, because after defrosting they do not look and taste as good as they used to. However, there is a method that can solve these problems: Acoustic Extra Freezing (AEF).

Global Food Summit: Protein and natural antibiotics from lobster shells

Lobsters, shrimps, crabs - their meat is considered a delicacy by many people. But the edible part of the animals is in stark disproportion to the amount of residue left over from the preparation, the hard, indigestible shells. Worldwide, between six and ten million tons of these are produced annually. Waste? Not at all. Rather, it is a valuable raw material that is still largely lost unused. Professor Thomas Brück from the Technical University of Munich plans to speak at the next Global Food Summit in Munich in March about new ways to recover this treasure.

Greeting from Michaela Kaniber, Bavarian State Minister for Food, Agriculture and Forestry

Global Food Summit 2020


Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

wie verändern Städte unsere Wahrnehmung von Essen und Natur? Wie sieht die Zukunft der ländlichen Regionen aus? Liegt die Zukunft der Landwirtschaft auch in den Städten?

Mit diesen und weiteren spannenden Fragen beschäftigt sich der hochka- rätig besetzte Global Food Summit 2020, der Ihnen in dieser Ausgabe des Magazins „Forum Nachhaltig Wirtschaften“ vorgestellt wird. Zum zweiten Mal heißen wir in München den Global Food Summit 2020 willkommen. Mit der Austragung der Veranstaltung in München wollen wir in Bayern wichti- ge Impulse für die Ernährungsversorgung der Zukunft setzen und innovati- ve Technologien und Produktionsmethoden in der Landwirtschaft und Le- bensmittelherstellung vorantreiben.

Das Thema des Global Food Summits “Foodtropolis. Urban. Circular. Food“ ist zukunftsweisend und heutzutage überaus präsent in der Food Start-Up Szene. Im Fokus steht die Kreislaufwirtschaft. Eines der bekann- testen Beispiele ist Aquaponik – eine geschlossene Kreislaufanlage zur Fischproduktion und Pflanzenzucht. Ziel der Kreislaufwirtschaft ist Abfall- vermeidung, Energieeinsparung und Reduktion von Treibhausgasemissio- nen. So können wir unsere Lebensmittelkette nachhaltiger, klimafreundli- cher und ressourcenschonender gestalten.

Ressourcen und Produkte so lange wie möglich in der Lebensmittelkette zu halten, ist die Voraussetzung für eine zukünftige wettbewerbsfähige Ernährungswirtschaft. Auch unsere bayerischen Landwirte, Lebensmittelpro- duzenten und -unternehmen können von dieser Entwicklung profitieren.

Man muss sich den Herausforderungen und Zukunftsszenarien stellen, damit daraus Chancen werden, um die Agrar- und Ernährungswirtschaft als einen der wichtigsten bayerischen Wirtschaftszweige zu sichern. Der Global Food Summit in München bietet uns als Dialogplattform für Wissen- schaft, Unternehmen, Verbände und Politik die große Gelegenheit, ge- meinsam zu diskutieren, in welchem Maße neue und innovative Technolo- gien hierfür Ansätze aufzeigen können.

Interview with Dr. Susanne Kadner, Head of the Circular Economy Initiative, acatech

Digitisation will change agriculture. For the first time in history, there is the possibility that closed production and waste circles will create a "circular food economy".
Innovations and artificial intelligence make it possible to implement a closed-loop concept in food production, manufacturing and resource processing that was previously unthinkable.
What are the opportunities and risks in this field and what role will artificial intelligence (AI) play in agriculture?

We asked Dr. Susanne Kadner, head of the Circular Economy Initiative's office at acatech, about this topic and found out what she is most looking forward to at the Global Food Summit 2020.
