We produce top quality food with aquaponics: an agricultural technology that pairs aquaculture and hydroponic farming.
This technology guarantees higher yields and more rapid growth in the plants under cultivation. Water consumption is thus reduced by 90% per kg of product compared to traditional agriculture. Our key numbers for 1 square meter – NFT

In 2021 The Circle entered in its growing plan Phase 2 accelerating its development to reap the benefits so it can reach an international dimension very soon. Today we are the largest Aquaponic commercial reality in Europe with 5000mq of greenhouses and over 100 restaurants that are supplied with our fresh produce on a regular basis.
We want to create 1 hectare of additional production to the already operational unit and to create an innovative biomimetic transformation plant for all our processed products. In addition to this we are working on the development of the Franchising Model that will allow us to grow rapidly by making the most of all the work done so far on the brand and on the reference market. Together with AVF it will be possible to enhance the chance of sharing vertical farm bases around the world where both people and the environment can benefit from it.
