- Our story
Where it all began. Family business Skretting was established in Stavanger, Norway, selling feed and equipment to the agriculture industry.
Early beginnings. We conduct our very first aquaculture trial – on rainbow trout that are being raised in wooden cages.
Full steam ahead. We commence the commercial production of extruded feeds.
A new era in R&D. Skretting Aquaculture Research Centre (ARC) is established and we open the Lerang Research Station.
Nutritional breakthroughs. The launch of our first functional diet – the forerunner of Protec.
Proud parent. Our owner Nutreco is founded.
Sharing best practice. We launch AquaVision, the biennial global aquaculture conference in Stavanger, Norway. We also introduce AminoBalance, which increases our feeds' protein value
Investing in the future. Our Feed Technology Plant (FTP) opens.
Furthering horizons. Skretting enters the Asian market with a joint-venture in Japan.
Replacing marine raw materials. LipoBalance is launched, ensuring exact omega-3 fatty acid content through precise fish and vegetable oil blends. We also introduce cold extrusion technology for starter diet production
United front. Skretting becomes the name of all Nutreco fish feed companies. We also launch Nutrace®, our dynamic company-wide system for ensuring quality and food safety.
Developing standards. We become an early participant in the WWF-initiated Aquaculture Dialogues
A healthy start in life. Skretting Marine Hatchery Feeds (MHF) is established.
Setting world records. We produce 1 million tonnes of salmon feed in 11 months. We also launch the ORI-GO live feed product range and unveil Protec, our industry-leading health diet
Long-term environmental commitment. We launch our SEA (Sustainable Economic Aquaculture) programme
Optimal nutrition. MicroBalance® is launched, providing alternative sources of micronutrients normally sourced from fishmeal. We also enter the shrimp feed market, establishing our first plant in Vietnam
Producing more with less. Premium, our high-energy concept, is launched to deliver higher growth and feed conversion rates
Revolutionising hatcheries. We launch ORI-ONE (culture and enrichment product for rotifers) and PL (our first larval and post-larval diet for shrimp)
Entering Africa. Strategic acquisitions made in Egypt and Nigeria
Expanding east. Our Research Station in Hezhoubei, China, opens to specialise in shrimp and Asian fish. Globally, we produce 2 million tonnes of feed
