Skretting and Atlantic Sapphire Announce Partnership to Develop Zero Marine Ingredient Salmon Diet

Skretting, a Vancouver-based feed manufacturing company, has announced an agreement with Atlantic Sapphire to build a state of the art RAS feed facility in Florida.

This feed facility will serve Atlantic Sapphire’s recirculation system (RAS) operations. Skretting will build and finance the feed plant while Atlantic Sapphire will source the majority of its salmon feed demand. The  contract has a 10 year life span, wherein Atlantic Sapphire will continue to source the salmon the entire decade.

This local feed source will reduce production costs and GHG emissions significantly.

Skretting has a stellar history of R&D, influencing Atlantic Sapphire’s decision in partnering up with them. This R&D record is set to continue as the two companies commit to developing specialist RAS salmon diets while reducing carbon footprints. This requires the testing and integration of novel ingredients and formulas. The ultimate goal is to use zero marine ingredients in the salmon diet without reducing the required levels of omega-3 fatty acids in the final product.

Are you developing new processes or formulas for an existing application? Did you know your development work could be eligible for the R&D Tax Credit and you can receive up to 14% back on your expenses? Even if your development isn’t successful your work may still qualify for R&D credits (i.e. you don’t need to have a patent to qualify).
