During the last decade the global production of fishmeal and fishoil has declined significantly. At the same time there has been an increasing demand for these products by the aquaculture sector and the developing markets for feeds containing high omega-3 levels.
IRIDA will only source fishmeal and fishoil from monitored fisheries certified as being sustainable. All suppliers need to be certified by IFFO for “Responsible Supply”. This certification enables a compliant factory to demonstrate that it responsibly resources its raw materials from well managed fisheries and responsibly converts that into pure and safe products.
We also use fishmeal and fishoil sourced from trimmings from the food fish processing sector which demonstrates our commitment to sustainability.
