Continuously striving to improve our CSR policy, Maison Metsens presents its connected aquaponic greenhouse. Self-sufficient in electricity thanks to solar panels.

The goal is to produce our own aromatic herbs and edible flowers on the rooftops of Allauch: short circuit, product quality and freshness, reduced environmental impact, strengthening the value chain, and waste reduction.


Aquaponics is the cultivation of fish and plants together in a closed-loop ecosystem, using natural bacterial cycles to transform fish waste into nutrients for plants. It is an ecological and natural way of producing food that combines the best qualities of aquaculture and hydroponics, without the need to discharge water, filter it, or use chemical fertilizers.

In memory of my friend François.
