Veramaris achieves a record-breaking year with a 50% increase in production volumes

Responding to the growing demand for sustainable Omega-3 EPA & DHA, Veramaris increased its production volume by 50% in 2023 (Baseline 2021). The company’s new sustainable development report shows how this was achieved with minimal increases in environmental footprint.

Delft, Netherlands, May 13th 2024. Veramaris marked a milestone by reaching record production volumes in 2023, contributing to the supply of alternative sources of Omega-3 EPA & DHA for aquafeed. The company has been at the forefront of addressing the market's growing need for sustainable Omega-3 EPA & DHA, which has risen in parallel with the global trend towards greater demand for aquaculture 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 CEO Gertjan de Koning.

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% rise in total greenhouse gas emissions, demonstrating its progress in decarbonizing its operations. This commitment to sustainability is further evidenced by the recent registration of a 27% lower product carbon footprint, reflecting the company's ongoing efforts across multiple initiatives to simultaneously decarbonize and improve the efficiency of its operations.

Veramaris’ new sustainable development report summarizes 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.
