The vision that inspires us

Together with our customers, suppliers and partners, we lead innovation to ensure access to more sustainable, healthier and safer seafood for the world’s growing population.

The values we live by

Skretting follows a global culture that is open, in which all our people care deeply about what they do, about each other and the environment in which they work. To fulfil our mission of ‘Feeding the Future’, we adhere to four clearly defined core values – Innovative, Caring, Collaborative and Capable – which are adopted throughout Nutreco. Our values are underpinned by SHV’s most important values of integrity and loyalty.


Our mission of ‘Feeding the Future’ is based on the challenge of feeding a global population that’s forecast to reach 9.5 billion people by 2050. The fast-growing world population, increased urbanisation, a growing middle class and changing diets will lead to a surge in demand for protein, especially in emerging markets. Our ambition is to contribute to meeting the rising food needs in a sustainable manner. We will do this by constantly seeking innovative ways to raise the efficiency and nutritional value of our products, the productivity of our activities and those of our customers, and to reduce the environmental impact of our value chains. Sustainability is not just what we aspire to do, it’s what we do.


In 2019 Skretting produced 2.3 million tonnes of aquaculture feed. Sales were the highest in Europe and Americas. The turnover for the Skretting Division in 2019 was 2.6 billion euros.

Skretting has 3501 full time employees. Eighty three percent of the full time employees are men and 17% are women.

The number of employees is down by 29 from 2018, partly due to the closure of the business in the United Kingdom. Skretting employs people from 61 nations and the average age is 39.
