WHAT WILL BE THE FUTURE OF RAW MATERIALS IN FEED?

Feed ingredients are globally scarce. Join us for presentations on future sustainable feed and raw materials!

The production of seafood worldwide is expected to, according to
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) increase by 50% through aquaculture by 2030. How are we going to succeed with these ambitions when there is a shortage of the most important input factor; feed?

POSSIBLE TANGIBLE ACTIONS

In this section, we will delve deeper into the world of feed technology with a focus on necessary time, risk assessments, and the balance between costs and benefits. We will also take a closer look at dimensioning, as well as explore the role of available energy sources and infrastructure in supporting such a scale. Additionally, we will examine potential incentives and business models that can contribute to sustainable growth in the industry.

OUTSIDE THE BOX

In the quest for sustainable solutions in the future of the food industry, we need to think outside the box. Have we missed valuable potential in raw materials that are currently underutilized for various reasons? Can we change attitudes and regulations to embrace the use of these raw materials, fostering a more circular and sustainable food production?

Genetic engineering: GMO/CRISPR 
TBA
Circular raw material sources: animal by-products and salmon oil 
EDGAR SKJERVOLD, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, NUTRIMAR

Can we utilize mushroom-based fermentation to make raw materials?
INGRID DYNNÅ, CO-FONDER AND CEO, NORWEGIAN MYCELLIUM
An exciting example of innovative raw material usage can be found at Nomy, a Norwegian company that employs mushroom-based fermentation to transform surplus materials from the food industry into valuable ingredients. By leveraging the unique properties of mushrooms, they can turn by-products into nutritious and flavorful products.
