About us


 

  • Foods of Norway is a Centre for Research-based Innovation (CRI) at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, funded by The Research Council of Norway and the Centre`s industry partners.

  • The centre aims to contribute to growth and increased value creation in the Norwegian aquaculture and agriculture industries, by developing sustainable feed ingredients from natural bioresources that are not suitable for direct human consumption.

  • We develop new feed products from forestry, agriculture, and marine resources through industrial exploitation of cutting-edge research on processing and (bio)technology.

  • Foods of Norway also aims to improve feed efficiency by advanced genomic analysis to support genetic adaptation and identification of new selection criteria for fish and farm animals.
