Cargill has extended its reporting on aquaculture with the release of a new report that includes all 17 of the company’s dedicated aqua feed facilities in 12 countries, covering 80 percent of its total aquafeed production footprint of nearly 1.5 million tonnes.
The company has also expanded its reporting to include more species. Driving supply chain improvements, all of the company’s 700 raw material suppliers also agreed to the company’s aqua nutrition Supplier Code of Conduct or an at least equivalent standard.
“After a decade of reporting on the sustainability of our salmon feed, we are now addressing feed for shrimp, tilapia and other species” said Einar Wathne, President, Cargill Aqua Nutrition. “It’s important for us to support our customers with sustainability insights and to continue managing the impacts of our operations across the value chain.”
The sustainability report is based on a value chain approach, addressing the company’s direct impact and broader environmental and social impacts, from consumers and customers, back to raw material suppliers.
