Zeal Aqua Ltd Chairman Speech

It is a privilege to write to you again as the Chairman of the Board of Zeal Aqua Limited. This financial year 2019-20 has shown a remarkable growth. The company has made a turnover of Rs. 24,961.02 Lakh in the financial year 2019-20 and has shown a rise by 4.83% as compared to the previous year turnover of Rs. 23,811.62 Lakh.

This year could have been more better and shown better results if this COVID 19 would not have busted. GOI announced entire Lockdown on 25th March, 2020 due to which the operations of the company were put to a stop.

In terms of global situation, Impacts on aquaculture businesses were immediate. Lockdowns subjected the value chain to severe domestic and international transport disruptions for production inputs, raw materials for processing, and finished products for domestic consumption and export. Strict enforcement of restrictions on the movement of materials and people, including workers, made farm inputs, such as feed and seed, unavailable. Small farmers suffered business losses because they could not sell their harvests, or were forced to sell at low prices. Many farmers cannot keep feeding their stock for too long without revenue as they must repay loans.

Currently, we are exporting to Europe, US, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, Australia, Japan, Netherlands, South Africa, China and South Korea. We are also got the BRC certification and HACCP so that we can target different geographies and increase our footprints. To support this growth, we have alongside embarked on several marketing initiatives and planning to participate in all major exhibitions.

At Gujarat, we have a natural constrain of cultivating only one crop per year, so for better control and efficiency we are have started pilot project of nursery culture for shrimp farming and which the resulted significant growth. Due to implementation of nursery project, production cost has reduced and overall survival rates and production per unit area than in single-phase grow out systems has increased, thus improving the bottom line of the farmers. We are also in final stage of getting the allocation of 350 Ha of land from government which we will develop in phase manner, thus our raw material supply is secured.

With international demand continuing to be significantly strong, thanks to changing lifestyles and food preferences, we continue to remain optimistic about our growth and success in the industry. Geographical expansion, thrust on R & D, and forward integration shall augur well for the future growth of your Company and thereby maximize shareholder value.

I would like to specifically thank our valued employees whose contribution in this journey is immeasurable. I value their dedication and commitment to the tasks at hand towards the pursuit of our short and long-term goals. Also, I would like to thank all our stakeholders who have shown overwhelming confidence, trust and support in us and importantly for our journey as shrimp processor, also, the encouragement they have shown us is in the pursuit of our goals.

Thank you all.

Although there were uncertainties due to the pandemic in the last quarter of FY2020, inherent resilience of the business model will position the Company well to navigate the challenges ahead. Also as the company is in essential services, i.e. supply of food, operations were going on to some extent in the company amidst lockdown period also. But then also the Covid-19 will impact the finances of the company and its impact can be ascertained only after life coming to stable position.
