The history of Agroittica begins with a project that was groundbreaking for its times. In 1972, Giovanni Tolettini and Gino Ravagnan imagined a way to take advantage of the residual heat of a steel plant, under construction at the time, in order to breed highly commercial fish.
Two brilliant people with different backgrounds merged their skills to design an integrated production system.
Calvisano (BS), rich in high quality waters surfacing from the aquifer, seemed to be the ideal location for an aquaculture site.
The first tests began trying to exploit the residue heat over a steel heat exchanger. The heat transferred to the uncontaminated waters that directly into the site confirmed the potential of this idea.
This innovative approach and the inclination to experiment will persist over time, characterizing the entire history of the company.
