The fast-growing global population coupled with increasing demand for sustainable protein mean that by 2050 we are going to need 70% more protein[1]. As national dietary guidelines increasingly bring attention to the importance of regular consumption of seafood, especially fatty fish, we at Bakkafrost take our responsibility to meet the increasing demand seriously by supplying global markets with healthy and sustainable North Atlantic salmon.

Today’s global food systems face unprecedented challenges. Population growth and income growth across the countries in the developing world put the current food systems under an enormous pressure. If we are going to feed nearly 10 billion people by 2050, we must focus on growing sustainable food systems that preserve the earth for future generations.

Bakkafrost salmon is farmed responsibly, and it is also highly nutritious. With a feed conversion ratio close to 1:1, farmed salmon is part of the solution to produce more food while preserving the earth’s resources.
By adding Bakkafrost salmon to your regular diet, you are making a difference, one bite at a time.
