The global partnership will jointly develop and market insect meal to help aqua feed customers raise more sustainable seafood with less environmental impact
Cargill and Innovafeed are committed to actions that identify and grow planet-friendly ingredients, find new ways to reuse by-products and develop fish nutrition that promotes and enhances the health of farmed fish.
The agreement combines Innovafeed’s expertise in formulating precision insect ingredients and Cargill’s global animal nutrition capabilities to scale up the use of insect ingredients in multiple types of animal feed. Under this new contract, Cargill will benefit from high-performance and sustainable ingredients for salmonids. Insect-based feed has become a competitive alternative to other sources of protein at all levels, including nutrition, production, and sustainability.
Together, Cargill and Innovafeed maximise the use of resources to create a high-quality feed with much less waste.
“A contract of this size and scope for insect ingredients in aquafeed is a first in our industry and marks a major milestone in favour of more sustainable and efficient animal feed, thanks to novel ingredients and insects more specifically,” said Clément Ray, Innovafeed’s co-founder and CEO.
Innovafeed is transforming the feed industry and broadening the basket of performant and sustainable ingredients available to the aquafeed formulators. Insect-based feed has become a competitive alternative to other sources of protein at all levels, including nutrition, production, and sustainability.
