Veramaris - a producer of algae-based omega-3 products for aquafeed - has marked a significant milestone by reaching record production volumes in 2023, following a 50 percent production increase. The company has helped to pioneer the global aquaculture market's growing need for sustainable omega-3 EPA & DHA, which has risen in parallel with the global trend towards greater demand for aquaculture products and healthy seafood.

“2023 marks a pivotal year for Veramaris, as we not only achieved a record increase in production volumes but also solidified our market position. We are now looking to scale up sustainably, streamlining our production processes and forging new partnerships,” said Veramaris chief executive Gertjan de Koning, in a press release from the company.

As set out in the company’s new sustainable development report, this significant growth in output was achieved with only a marginal increase in greenhouse gas emissions. Veramaris reported only a 3 percent rise in total greenhouse gas emissions, demonstrating its progress in decarbonising its operations.

Veramaris’ commitment to sustainability is further evidenced by the recent registration of a 27 percent reduction in their product carbon footprint, reflecting the company's ongoing efforts across multiple initiatives to simultaneously decarbonise and improve the efficiency of its operations.

Veramaris’ new sustainable development report summarises its achievements in 2023, its new targets, and more details about the company’s sustainability-related partnerships. The full report is available on the company's website.
