Our core strategies
In everything we do, we focus on our three main strategies that has been with us from the start.
Local value creation
We believe that the value creation from Norway’s fish farming should go to the local communities close to the source.
Utilize the whole fish
In order to have a truly sustainable business model, we utilize the fish waste and turn it into high value marine nutrition products.
Low environmental impact
In our whole value chain, from farming to freight of the finished product, we focus on reducing the environmental impact.
Ensuring sustainable food for generations – Responsible Farming
Norway’s unique nature creates a perfect area for fish farming. After thousands of years with natural accommodation for the Atlantic salmon and trout, it is our responsibility to organize our facilities and conduct our operations in sustainable way that preserves and protects the fjord’s wildlife.
Aquaculture has a low environmental footprint
Aquaculture is a sustainable and low-impact way of producing food. Compared to beef, one kilo salmon need eight times less feed than one kilo beef, while at the same time producing ten times less carbon and using eleven times less water.
We acknowledge the reality of the climate crisis and accept our responsibility to provide sustainable, healthy food for as many people around the world as possible. We see this as a duty, not an option — based as we are in a fjord environment that has abundant resources of water and renewable energy, and is ringed by protective mountains, we can make optimal use of these assets through our wellestablished value chain to provide the world with much-needed healthy nutrition.
