The worlds food production systems aren’t sustainable. They cause massive environmental problems and are very vulnerable to climate change.
At Johannas we design, build and help operate circular food production systems, that are scalable and replicable. At the core of our systems, we have fish, bacteria cultures, vegetables and insects. We call these living food factories “Johannas in a Box”. Johannas’ circular food production systems deliver premium products 365 days per year, whilst reducing pollution and resource use, as well as increase resilience.
