In this division we are the world’s largest producer of 100% cotton meshes, which are used in aquaculture, specifically in the sowing and harvesting of mussels, being a biodegradable material, an essential condition for the survival of mussels until its harvest. Being submerged in seawater, the living microorganisms that inhabits the ocean absorbs the cotton were in a very short period of time makes all its particles disappear.
In addition to the above, we manufacture the Ropemussel (fattening cable), with a unique technology, designed and developed with our technicians from Tipy Town and German engineers. This consists of a braided cable from which the loops come out, which is where the mussels are attached until they are harvested.
It is noteworthy to indicate that Chile in this field in a couple of years has become the first exporter and the second producer of mussels worldwide.
