Skretting won the contract to supply Atlantic Sapphire with majority volumes from November 2019. The contract covers the majority of Atlantic Sapphire’s feed requirement in Denmark and the USA.
On the contract decision, Johan Andreassen, CEO of Atlantic Sapphire said that “Skretting has demonstrated a strong R&D foundation and that was a key decision-making factor for us. We are excited to work in partnership to develop a salmon feed optimized for our bluehouse technology.”
“We are committed to providing Atlantic Sapphire with the very best and this commitment extends beyond delivering optimized feed,” said Evy Vikene, Skretting commercial director. "Through Skretting’s RecircReady concept, Atlantic Sapphire will receive access to unrivalled support and service covering feed quality, monitoring, feeding and technical expertise for optimal success and RAS feed efficiency,” stated Vikene.
Skretting has implemented global RAS quality standards for a new range of feed products, RCX, focused on production in RAS. This novel product range will be utilized to minimize the risk to water quality and filter loading of Atlantic Sapphire’s large-scale grow out facilities.
Skretting Aquaculture Research Centre (ARC) has dedicated RAS R&D facilities around the world, in addition to a dedicated expert R&D team to provide essential inputs. Skretting launched the first global RAS feed in 2009 and holds two proprietary solutions crucial to optimizing feed for RAS.
