Foods of Norway will use new technology to create novel feeds from land-based and marine resources as well as improve the genetic robustness of fish and farm animals.

The solution

The solution

Norway has limited land area for growing food and feed resources, but possesses large natural bioresources such as forests, grass, macroalgae, and co-products from fish, animals and plants that can provide a basis for the production of novel feed ingredients.

The challenge

The challenge

Today, the Norwegian fish farming and farm animal industries rely largely on imported plant ingredients, such as soy. But Norway can no longer continue to depend so heavily on imports, as there have been dramatic changes in world feed resources in recent years, with decreasing supply and higher prices.
