Norway’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg recently referred to salmon as “Norway’s IKEA”, because people buy and eat Norwegian salmon all over the world. In the same way as IKEA needs materials to build furniture, salmon need a feed on which they can grow. The feeds that are currently in use consist principally of raw materials from plants. A revolution in feed has been under way for the past 15 years. And it’s far from over.
In our facility we offer the best solutions to develop and test new ingredients and feeds. We have extensive knowledge in technology and raw materials, and highly skilled scientists.
Feed is more than its purely nutritional content. It also concerns the dynamic needs of farmed fish, the production system of which the fish are one component, and the sustainability of the ingredients. We work to develop knowledge in this field.
