Cargill Aqua Nutrition Sustainability report for 2021 launched

We are raising the bar to accelerate sustainable ingredient sourcing, prioritize animal health and welfare, and drive innovation to help our customers do more with less. 19 factories in 12 countries are included in the reporting, which besides salmon also covers other aquaculture species.

Highlights from the 2021 report include:

  • Driving circular and sustainable ingredients
    For the first time, our annual feed production—for both coldwater and warmwater species—surpassed the use of 50% co-product ingredients, and 40% of our marine ingredients came from trimmings and by-products.

  • Scaling up use of novel ingredients
    To date, insect meals and algal oils have been the products commercially implemented through our novel ingredient strategy. In 2021, we helped launch the Millennial Salmon project to build on this. We also extended our global partnership with Innovafeed to bring novel ingredients to scale.

  • Refitting facilities for zero emissions
    Our Bergneset feed mill in Norway was converted to become fully electrified, using renewable hydroelectricity— generating almost zero GHG emissions. The conversion was completed and launched in 2022.

  • Bringing SeaFurther™ Sustainability to life
    In March 2021, we launched SeaFurther™ Sustainability, our flagship sustainability program helping farmers reduce the environmental footprint of their fish by at least 30% by 2030. By doing so, we’ll help the industry save 2 billion kilograms of CO2—the equivalent of removing more than 400,000 cars from the road in one year. Just a few months after launch, producers from Norway, Scotland, and Chile joined us on this path, and we’re now actively identifying and implementing GHG reductions. This has paved the way for more sustainable supply chain opportunities in 2022 and the program’s expansion to more customers.
