Our sustainability program: It's not just what we aspire to do, it's what we do

Catfish Sustainability Project

Since 2015, Nutreco and Skretting have partnered on the Catfish Sustainability Project (CSP) in Nigeria, with excellent success. Through this project, we are working to enhance the production, profitability and environmental sustainability of the catfish business in the Ibadan region, while empowering small farmers to raise themselves out of poverty. CSP was funded by Nutreco and Skretting Nigeria and facilitated by the Justice, Development and Peace Commission (JDPC).

Over the years, we have helped participating farmers’ integrate best management practices and improve the sustainability of their businesses through training, advisory services and learning visits.

The training on cooperative management, savings and credit the farmers receive through the project has helped them form cooperatives. An increase in farmer-to-farmer knowledge sharing within the groups has also been actualised.

Skretting and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

In 2015 the United Nations introduced a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. Our sustainability program is closely aligned with the SDGs. Our purpose of Feeding the Future is directly addressing SDG 2: Zero hunger.
