Bridging the raw material gap
As the global population continues to grow, there is increasing focus on aquaculture to provide the protein to feed the world. At Skretting, as one of the largest aquaculture feed suppliers in the world, we see that we have an essential role to play. A 30 million tonne projected increase in aquaculture production means there will be a need for an additional 45 million tonnes of raw materials. So where will they come from? In this series, we deepen on some of our ongoing activities in this arena, exploring novel ingredients and some of our most important partnerships.
Skretting is in full support of the development of novel ingredients. We’re proactively working towards fully understanding the complexities of these alternatives from sustainability, nutritional, quality and safety, regulatory and financial perspectives. We believe that this knowledge will help ensure that aquaculture continues to progress responsibly.
