Raised on our own farm in Mozambique, we can guarantee total traceability of our shrimp. We master all the trades from breeding to conservation on a single site.
An exceptional 1200 ha site north of the Zambezi River
Freshness, incomparable crunchiness, length in the mouth, the black Qwehli from Mozambique has kept all its wild essence. Vast ponds dug on an exceptional 1200 ha site north of the Zambezi River allow the shrimp to grow at their own pace as if they were in the open sea. The Qwehli farm’s breeding protocol is the result of 7 years of research and development to provide a product with no antibiotics, no pesticides and no colouring.
A FARM COMMITTED ON ALL FRONTS
Our Aquapesca farm was founded by a French family that has been established in Mozambique for over 25 years. Beyond the quality of the farming, the total control of the entire life cycle of the shrimp until it is shipped to Europe and Asia, Aquapesca has always displayed its ambition to be a «better for the world» farm and not just «the best
in the world». It collaborates with Mozambican universities, finances an ambitious aquaculture training programme, encourages entrepreneurship among young Mozambicans
through the «Mais Peixe» programme and actively supports the promotion of women, who hold 40% of management positions. It remains the guarantor of the preservation of
the environment, in particular the mangrove forest that surrounds it.
