09/08/2016: Increased demand for QRILL™ products worldwide

According to the company’s latest Annual Report, 2015 was considered a historic year for Aker BioMarine, the leading supplier of krill-derived products to the consumer health and wellness and animal nutrition markets.
          
Aker BioMarine generated USD 105 million in revenue in 2015, which yielded an EBITDA of USD 25.7 million. QRILL™ Aqua, the Antarctic krill meal used in feeds for shrimp, marine fish and salmonids grew in revenues from USD 39.2 million in 2014 to USD 44.9 million in 2015. Since 2012, QRILL™ Aqua revenues have grown by 105 percent.
          
“The reason for this growth is the proven benefits the product brings for the farmers. In 2015, we further strengthened the documentation demonstrating the benefits provided by these krill products. Throughout the year, we documented exciting, valuable QRILL™ Aqua benefits that improve salmon quality parameters, such improved fillet quality, improved fat distribution and higher yield,” says Sigve Nordrum, EVP QRILL™ Sales.
         
Sustainable harvest has been at the core of how Aker BioMarine conducts business. In 2015, Aker BioMarine was recognised several times for its sustainability achievements:

  • In 2015, Aker BioMarine strengthened its partnership with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF-Australia) to bring it closer to activities in the Southern Ocean
  • Aker BioMarine, along with several NGOs established the Antarctic Wildlife Research Fund (AWR) to facilitate and promote more research on the Antarctic ecosystem
  • The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) renewed Aker BioMarine’s sustainable krill harvesting certification for another five-year period (2015-2020)
  • The Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) gave Aker BioMarine’s fishery an 'A' rating in the 2015 Reduction Fisheries Sustainability Overview
  • Nutrition Business Journal’s January 2015 edition featured Aker BioMarine as the winner of its Business Achievement Award in the category of Sustainability, making it the first omega-3 company to receive this award
“We are thoroughly committed to responsible management of the Antarctic Krill biomass – for the wellbeing of our oceans and planet and to ensure the future of our business,” Mr Nordrum says.
