Tilapia Certified as Organic and Non-GMO
New Global Energy’s tilapia is in the process of becoming “Certified Organic” by ICS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Where Food Comes From, Inc. that specializes in organic, gluten-free and related certification services. To receive certification as Organic and Non-GMO, New Global Energy is completing a stringent, lengthy application process that included on-site inspections and an in-depth review of our entire tilapia operation.
Organic practices are better for the land, the environment, animals, and people and there can be price premiums and marketing benefits for certified products. For New Global Energy, the added benefit is that since our fish are fed Organic Certified Feed, NGE will be able to sell our tilapia as Non-GMO Certified to those same premium markets where Non-GMO Tilapia is selling for between $12 and $14 a pound. While organic certification is not required, it opens our distribution to additional premium markets such as Whole Foods and Trader Joes.
According to Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Tom Vilsack, “Consumer demand for organic products continues to increase and the industry has experienced remarkable growth, representing more than $39 billion in U.S. retail sales. This growth creates opportunities for farmers and businesses across the country. Expanding the safety net for farmers wanting to enter the organic market ensures they have the tools and resources they need to meet this growing demand while protecting their operation.”
New Global Energy’s farms are uniquely suited to grow tilapia, which is a tropical fish, because of the area’s warm climate and the availability of warm fresh water from geo-thermally heated wells. Our fish are fed nutrient rich algae and other aquatic plants green for their first four months in grow-out ponds that represent a natural environment. This proprietary fish feeding methodology saves us up to 70% on overall feed costs.
ICS was one of the first organic certification companies in the United States, founded in 1979 as Farm Verified Organic, Inc. by Fred Kirschenmann, a longtime national and international leader in organic and sustainable agriculture. The company has played an integral role in establishing organic standards and certification processes and procedures over the last 35 years and continues to be a leader in the organic certification industry today.
Moringa Protein Bars
New Global Energy is currently in the process of testing Moringa Protein Bars with several companies for manufacturing and distribution. The Moringa needs to be blended with other products and has to contain the required amount of Moringa to receive the nutritional benefits from the product. The taste of the product is of utmost concern for the distributors.
We have strong interest from many distributors, especially if our Moringa is grown locally and organically, including both large and small companies. We are confident that the introduction of Moringa Protein Bars is an ideal complement to New Global Energy’s business since it is based on providing natural, effective health solutions.
Stay tuned for details on how to purchase our Moringa products for your family and friends. We also will be sending a sample pack of our products to all of our shareholders, most likely in the third quarter of 2016.
Cargill’s EWOS Team Visits NGE’s Coachella Valley Farm
New Global Energy is exploring a partnership with EWOS, a Cargill subsidiary.
Two leading aquaculture experts from EWOS visited New Global Energy’s farm to monitor our feed process long before Cargill bought them. Details available HERE.
EWOS is looking for plant protein substitutes for soybean. They love the idea of Moringa because it has a higher protein content than soybeans, doesn’t compete with human food, is not subject to the volatility and speculation of the commodities markets and can grow in the desert so that it doesn’t compete with existing farmland.
World’s Largest Moringa Farm
We recently signed a memorandum of understanding to enter into a joint venture agreement with the world’s largest Moringa farm. Located in Leon, Nicaragua, the 180-acre farm is a leading source of nutrient rich Moringa. Under terms of the agreement, New Global Energy, Inc. will launch Moringa Reserve, LLC to develop, operate, distribute and sell Moringa-based products to U.S. retail markets.
The Moringa farm’s ideal growing conditions combined with the best possible production methods and 20+ years of Moringa experience result in high quality Moringa products. The land is extremely fertile and from volcanic origin. The fields are fertilized from compost made from the stems and trunks of the Moringa tree and the Moringa is all natural and organically grown without any chemicals.
We are entering this joint venture to ensure that we have enough supply to meet the demand of the orders that we anticipate for future distribution. Moringa is the Rolls Royce of all superfoods and offers serious nutrition that can radically benefit one’s overall health in literally hundreds of ways.
