For the fourth consecutive year, Mowi has been ranked the most sustainable protein producer by the Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index.

The Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index is the most detailed assessment of the largest meat, dairy and farmed fish producers in the world. Rankings for each of the 60 companies assessed are determined by a risk and opportunity score across environmental, social, and governance-related criteria including greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation and food safety.

Speaking about Mowi’s ranking on the Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index, CEO Ivan Vindheim said that “this shows again that Mowi is at the forefront of sustainable food production. I am proud and humbled to lead an organization that is a recognized leader in sustainable food production.”

Mowi has consistently scored at the top of the index since its inception, due to its robust policies on responsible sourcing, animal welfare, environmental sustainability and more.

The 2022 report found that aquaculture companies, primarily salmon companies, continue to perform better than land animal protein producers. In fact, Mowi is joined in the top four ranked companies by fellow aquaculture companies Grieg Seafood ASA and Lerøy Seafood Group ASA, both headquartered in Norway, who are ranked 2nd and 4th respectively.

“FAIRR’s methodology continues to evolve, and companies are expected to report more and show progress on more metrics than when the rating started five years ago, so it is becoming increasingly harder to be ranked on the top. Three Norwegian salmon companies are among the top 4 from all the 60 companies benchmarked. This reinforces the recognition of Norwegian salmon farming as frontrunners on sustainability,” Martins said.
