Harmonizing LCA data in feed production: Soy as a case study

Life cycle assessment (LCA) is a data intensive tool used to quantify the environmental impacts of products and services. Despite data access being essential for performing high quality assessments, robust and complete LCA datasets are in short supply even for key aquafeed ingredients, such as soy.

Authenticity of Marine Products

While BioMar continues to transform aquaculture feeds with innovative new nutrient sources, there still remains no perfect substitute to marine ingredients. Fish oil and fishmeal are excellent nutrients and although we do source certified marine products, we do believe validation is essential in building stakeholder trust.

Water and Waste Management

Globally, drinking water is a very scarce but a vital resource. Even though this is not a problem in most areas where BioMar operates, we do affect the consumption of this scarce resource by purchasing raw materials that are responsible for considerable water consumption in the countries of origin. These countries are often in areas where water shortage is critical. We address this by sourcing raw materials with respect to international guidelines and certification schemes, in which responsible use of water has a high priority.

Transparency & Food Safety

Complete traceability is fundamental to food safety. BioMar procedures and registrations contribute to full traceability both forwards and backwards in the food production chain. All feed ingredients can be traced back through BioMar's production and warehouses to the supplier of each individual raw material. Similarly, any raw material or finished feed can be traced to the individual farmer who has received the feed from BioMar.
