Although, the farm is technically and financially self-reliant, we have news to share with you : In the 1st semester of 2014, the 330m2 of the Ibity site produced 181kg of spirulina, which represents a productivity rate of 3.1g/m2/day. Contractually 20% of this output goes to the Nutrition House, which is managed by Antenna Technologies Antsirabé.
This farm, originally directly managed by ATA has been since 2013 under the management of the Nutrispir-Antenna association, founded by Christian RANDRIANASOLE, former Operations Director at ATA.
- Production is perfectly monitored. 328kg of spirulina were produced in 2013.
- Sufficient outlets were found both for social and commercial distribution
- 20% of production goes to Antenna Technologies Antsirabé to provide spirulina to the Nutrition House and other associations in Antsirabé.
This farm is now fully self-reliant technically and financially.
