Sustainable raw materials
BioMar shall use sustainable raw materials.
BioMar shall use sustainable raw materials that can be traced back to their place of origin. BioMar performs regular assessments of the criteria necessary to ensure and document responsible procurement of raw materials, these criteria being connected in particular to sustainability issues. Specific requirements are in place for the purchase of marine raw materials, soya and palm products.
BioMar shall have an overview of the proportion of our supplies of marine raw materials that originate from catches in line with the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, for example IFFO RS, MSC or similar.
BioMar only deals in certified soya and palm products, and we want as far as possible to use residual raw materials in our feed production.
