Our History - BioMar

Innovating aquaculture for more than 50 years


In the early 1960’s a group of Danish fish farmers establish BioMar under the name Dansk Ørredfoder A/S.

The company is among the first in Europe to start production of pelletised dry feed. Compared to the commonly used wet feed this new type of feed is less polluting, better performing and much easier to handle.

The Danish fish farming sector consolidates and the interest for applying dry feeds increases. The company mainly serves local fish farms although it receives orders fom surrounding countries, with subsequent sporadic exports.

1962: Founded by a group of Danish farmers under the name Dansk Ørredfoder A/S


BioMar pioneers the introduction of extruded fish feed that allows for a significant reduction of the impact from aquaculture on the local water environment.

ECOLINE, the first environmentally declared fish feed in the world, is launched.

BioMar establishes sustainability as one of the main goals in feed development in order to minimise adverse ecological consequences of current and future aquaculture activity and expansion.

The company starts to expand internationally, both in terms of exports, andthrough acquisitions in Europe.

1995: BioMar establishes production in Grangemouth, Scotland


BioMar takes game changing initiatives such as launching SMARTfeed, a range of feed products with bio-functional components targeting improved fish health.

The BioSustainTM programme is launched, aiming for optimisation of sustainability efforts by measuring and evaluating the sustainability of raw materials and processes.

BioMar becomes one of the leading suppliers of aquaculture feed in the world by investing in further factories in Europe and going beyond the borders of Europe by acquiring factories in Chile.

2002: BioMar aquires factories in Chile


BioMar contributes to enhancing survival and growth performances of fish and shrimp by introducing feeds containing Bactocell®, the only probiotic approved by the European Commission for inclusion in aquaculture feeds.

BioMar launches ORBIT, a diet specially developed for farming in RAS systems that are receiving more and more attention as a viable long-term sustainable solution to aquaculture.

A BioMar factory is the first feed plant in the world to comply with the ASC standard for salmon and trout, a standard that is focusing on socially and environmentally responsible aquaculture production. BioMar commits to environmentally friendly and sustainable feed delivery solutions by operating the world's first cargo ship of its type powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG).

BioMar starts publishing its annual global Sustainability Report, and with this commits to increased public transparency in its activities.

In this decade BioMar continues expanding its global presence through establishing production in in Costa Rica, Turkey and (from 2017) China.

2015: BioMar and Tongwei stablish Joint Venture in China


Today, BioMar is positioned as one of the leading feed suppliers in the aquaculture industry.

Looking at our past and to the future we are a company where innovation, cooperation, sustainability and performance are strong pillars.

We are proud of our history.

We will continue contributing to the production of healthy and great tasting seafood in a sustainable and an efficient way, with the same dedication as we have had throughout the years since 1962.
