Sustainable Trout Fish – From the Glacier waters to your Dinner table
Our Rainbow trout is sourced from farms in pristine valleys surrounded by some of the world’s tallest mountains. We understand the fragility of the environment we operate in, and ensure that our activities are eco-friendly.
The Trout farm is designed to minimize the hydrological impact of the farming activity. The fish ponds utilize natural glacier water from free-flowing streams, without artificially stocking-up water. The water flowing out of the farm is tested to ensure it contains no chemicals that may harm the local fauna and marine life.
The workers at the farm and the processing facility are hired locally, and preferably from a deprived segment of society. They are trained to upgrade their skill-sets. The employment generation has a trickle-down effect by improving the conditions of the households and the neighborhoods where our workers come from.
Partners, not Competitors…
AVL sees local farmers as our partners, and not competition. We have formal programs for transfer of aquaculture knowledge to the local farmers – thus improving the quality and quantity of their produce. We also offer avenues to the local farmers to improve the salability of their product via processing / packaging, and accessibility of the down-country market.
