We use 8,000-10,000 tonnes of fish feed per year. This is our largest cost item as well as an important factor for the additional growth of fish, environmental emissions and our economy and competitiveness. Different types of feed are used for various fish species and fish in different sizes. This enormous amount of feed poses a challenge to suppliers because of the limited storage capacity of our facilities. We have high requirements for the quality of the feed and the growth potential it provides. Our main feed suppliers work seriously and persistently in matters related to quality, for example, and to ensure the shelf life and traceability of the feed.
We also strive to establish long-term relationships and agreements with various other suppliers, regardless of whether they supply fry and fish plants, farming and other equipment, pumps, boats, engines or cranes. Our work involves specialist knowledge and skills, which is why we need reliable cooperation partners. Where possible, we try to use local companies in the vicinity of our facilities, which is our way of bearing responsibility for the local community. Our operations thereby have a significant impact on local employment and economy.
