Skretting Sustainability Report highlights wins and challenges in 2018

A strong focus on the development and implementation of novel raw materials for commercial use in nutritional solutions, together with progress towards well-defined sustainability ambitions and aspirations that are aligned with a long-term strategy and the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are some of the highlights presented in Skretting's Sustainability Report 2018.

As a result of a clear vision initiated decades ago, Skretting has kept innovating to provide sustainable solutions that allow a concrete contribution to the aquaculture industry's license to grow.

Hence, the edie Award received by Skretting for MicroBalance FLX in the category of Sustainability Product Innovation of the Year in 2018 is a recognition of the development of a nutritional solution that together with a unique combination of products, services and digital tools is helping farmers boost productivity, support animal health and minimise negative environmental impacts in an ethical and sustainable way.


The report also emphasises the increasing focus of the company to develop novel raw materials together with different stakeholders in the value chain, from raw material suppliers to customers and retailers, to a stage where they can be implemented in commercial feed, a milestone that allowed Skretting to be the leading supplier to provide solutions with both algal oil and insect meals.

Cawthron Institute Symposium draws together global aquaculture expertise to unlock open ocean potential, New Zealand

Leading scientific minds will come together in Nelson this August to discuss the shift taking place in aquaculture from sheltered waterways to open ocean farming.

New Zealand's largest independent science organisation, Cawthron Institute, is hosting its inaugural Open Oceans aquaculture symposium, 'Unlocking the potential of our oceans', which will discuss the ways open ocean aquaculture developments in both shellfish and finfish farming could revolutionise the global aquaculture industry.
 


The symposium will be held from 5-7 August 2019 at the Rutherford Hotel in Nelson, New Zealand.

New Zealand's aquaculture industry is growing in response to globally increasing demand but is constrained by limited sheltered inshore farm space, says Cawthron Institute CEO Professor Charles Eason.

The new frontier is open ocean aquaculture, where there are large tracts of consented space available but farming is challenging in exposed and dynamic waters, he says. New engineering concepts and farming approaches are needed to realise this opportunity and provide confidence for industry investment.

FAMSUN company profile



Muyang Co, Ltd recently announced changing its brand name from Muyang to FAMSUN starting May 2014. This move is prompted by the idea of better illustrating the company’s business and the farm-to-table industry chain it serves. It is consistent with Muyang’s global strategy and its aim of becoming an integrated solution provider in the agro-industry.

FAMSUN originates from “famous, farm, family, sun and union”; it implies Muyang Co, Ltd’s development concept and vision, which is to build a green and healthy supply chain from farm to table together with its customers and to convert traditional agriculture into a modern, profitable and sustainable business with its integrated solutions in feed manufacturing, grain milling, grain handling and storage, food processing, as well as industrial automation.

The creative design of the FAMSUN logo features a beveled letter “F”, a curvy letter “A”, a stretching letter “S” and a friendly letter “U”. It will be the only signage representing Muyang’s business, products, service and solutions. Meanwhile, the company will continue to operate in its current structure, provide follow-up service based on relevant agreement, and its business contacts will remain unchanged.
