About Arctic Feed Ingredients

Functional feed ingredients for global aquaculture

What we do

Arctic Feed identifies, documents and markets functional feed ingredients, for example, ingredients that have a demonstrable positive effect on the health, welfare or product quality of production animals.

We look for ingredients that have proved useful in terrestrial animals and test whether they can also be useful for fish or shrimp in farming. In addition, we market selected ingredients with complete documentation for complete assurance.

Our main customers are global feed industry for aquaculture, and fully integrated fish farming companies.

our approach

Before aquaculture feed companies purchase any new ingredients, they have requirements for ingredient data sheets and verified documentation. This can be a demanding challenge for micro-ingredients innovators.

From our experience in the sector, we have established a pre-defined R&D framework agreement with selected institutions and companies within the industry, that allows us to fast-track micro-ingredients to market.

OUR MISSION - HELPING TO FEED THE GROWING POPULATION

Arctic Feed contributes to sustainable farming by facilitating the production of more fish with feed containing sustainable raw materials, rather than raw materials from endangered wild fish stocks or human food sources.

Increased farming and decreased taxation of wild fish stocks help to increase the supply of sustainable food for a growing population.

Our mission is directly linked to the United Nations Sustainability Goals by working to satisfy today’s needs without destroying or degrading the opportunities of future generations.

Arctic Feed undertakes to support the United Nations Sustainability Goals by:

  • Not adversely affecting species diversity.
  • Be part of the solution to the climate challenge.
  • Using the oceans and global water resources in a way that promotes environmentally sustainable development.
  • Help increase world food production.
  • Contributing to positive Norwegian society development, especially along the coast.
  • Contribute to the eradication of hunger in the world.
  • Contributing to good and fair conditions of labour
