The planet-friendly choice

Did you know:

The low carbon footprint, a remarkably low feed conversion ratio, and highly efficient use of land throughout our operations makes farmed salmon from Bakkafrost the planet-friendly food choice.  



Emission from greenhouse gasses poses a critical threat to our planet. Moreover, due to population growth, the demand for protein continues to increase, but available arable land is declining. The need for change to smarter and more sustainable solutions in all aspects of life is becoming even more urgent.

Compared to some of the largest sources of non-marine protein (pork, beef and lamb), farmed salmon is one of the most eco-efficient and sustainable forms of protein available. With a low carbon footprint, a remarkably low feed conversion ratio, and highly efficient use of land throughout our operations, farmed salmon from Bakkafrost is the planet-friendly food choice.  

Through our vertically integrated value chain, we have full control of every aspect of production, providing us with a unique opportunity and responsibility to raise healthy and sustainable Atlantic salmon.

Our mission is to make it easy and convenient to live a sustainable and healthy life. And by continuously introducing new sustainability measures throughout our operations, we ensure our products meet and exceed the requirements for sustainable living.

Here is why salmon from Bakkafrost is the planet-friendly choice:

  • Low carbon footprint – 0.6g CO2e per 40g typical serving of salmon (GSI average)
  • Remarkably low feed conversion ratio – 1.2-1.5 (kg)
  • Efficient use of land – 3.7 m2/100g protein
