Aller Aqua Group is the world’s first fish feed company verified in CO2-labelling of our products
It is a huge milestone for us to be the first company to be able to label our entire product portfolio by the recognized PEFCR (Product Environment Footprint Category Rules) principles Feed for food-producing animals.
Each of the raw materials we use have been through the process and we therefore now have the necessary data to label our products.
This means that we can offer customers a full carbon footprint declaration on each type of feed. This is a big step towards carbon footprint declaration of fish produced by our customers, and all the way to the consumer. Aquaculture is already one of the most environmentally friendly ways of producing protein compared to other types of animal farming.
We wished to create full transparency for our customers and the world around us, and particularly to contribute to reducing CO2 emissions. This project checks all those boxes.
We have already taken other measures such as replacing South American soya with regionally produced soya in our European factories.
It has been important for us to be verified in this process, which is why we have asked Bureau Veritas to control our work – this was rewarded with a verification without any annotations – and we are proud of that.
The practicalities regarding the declaration can therefore start. Initially we include our three European factories, but shortly we plan to include the rest of our 7 factories in the process.
