In replacement of fishmeal and oil
Cargill will begin to add algal oil into all feed delivered to the Norwegian market. This ingredient has the potential to reduce fish farmers’ dependence on fish oil in aquaculture production. According to the company, the ingredient will be included in its feed at the beginning of April.
Before, Cargill delivered feed with algae oil to Norwegian salmon farming and harvesting giant Leroy Seafood. The Bergen-based company tested the ingredient at an early stage. Cargill credits Leroy so it creates a demand for inclusion of algal oil and making the ingredient commercially viable.
Cargill has 155,000 employees across 70 countries. They connect farmers with markets, customers with ingredients, and people and animals with the food they need to thrive. The company has 155 years of experience with new technologies and insights to serve as a trusted partner for food, agriculture, financial and industrial customers in more than 125 countries.
