2017 saw the arrival of a technological breakthrough for Skretting – N3 – a groundbreaking salmonid diet that utilises a new marine algae oil capable of providing a viable and sustainable alternative to the finite supply of the traditional fish feed raw material.
Skretting’s groundbreaking Prime and Express diets launch globally. The diets utilise the full growth potential of salmon, providing farmers with the means to further enhance their operations.
The launch of MicroBalance FLX provides unprecedented ingredient formulation flexibility and enables salmon farmers to produce more from less in a sustainable way.
Lorica is launched - the most advanced functional health feed for farmed shrimp.
Expanding east. Our Research Station in Hezhoubei, China, opens to specialise in shrimp and Asian fish. Globally, we produce 2 million tonnes of feed
Entering Africa. Strategic acquisitions made in Egypt and Nigeria
Revolutionising hatcheries. We launch ORI-ONE (culture and enrichment product for rotifers) and PL (our first larval and post-larval diet for shrimp)
Producing more with less. Premium, our high-energy concept, is launched to deliver higher growth and reduce feed conversion rates
Optimal nutrition. MicroBalance® is launched, providing alternative sources of micronutrients normally sourced from fishmeal. We also enter the shrimp feed market, establishing our first plant in Vietnam
Long-term environmental commitment. We launch our SEA (Sustainable Economic Aquaculture) programme
Launch of Protec - our prime functional diet for farmed fish.
Setting world records. We produce 1 million tonnes of salmon feed in 11 months. We also launch the ORI-GO live feed product range and unveil Protec, our industry-leading health diet
A healthy start in life. Skretting Marine Hatchery Feeds (MHF) is established.
Developing standards. We become an early participant in the WWF-initiated Aquaculture Dialogues
United front. Skretting becomes the name of all Nutreco fish feed companies. We also launch Nutrace®, our dynamic company-wide system for ensuring quality and food safety.
Replacing marine raw materials. LipoBalance is launched, ensuring exact omega-3 fatty acid content through precise fish and vegetable oil blends. We also introduce cold extrusion technology for starter diet production
Furthering horizons. Skretting enters the Asian market with a joint-venture in Japan.
Investing in the future. Our Feed Technology Plant (FTP) opens.
Sharing best practice. We launch AquaVision, the biennial global aquaculture conference in Stavanger, Norway. We also introduce AminoBalance, which increases our feeds' protein value
Proud parent. Our owner Nutreco is founded.
Nutritional breakthroughs. The launch of our first functional diet – the forerunner of Protec.
A new era in R&D. Skretting Aquaculture Research Centre (ARC) is established and we open the Lerang Research Station.
Full steam ahead. We commence the commercial production of extruded feeds.
Early beginnings. We conduct our very first aquaculture trial – on rainbow trout that are being raised in wooden cages.
Where it all began. Family business Skretting was established in Stavanger, Norway, selling feed and equipment to the agriculture industry.
