Most sustainable protein producer in the world
December 20, 2022
For the fourth consecutive year, Mowi has been ranked the most sustainable protein producer by the Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index.
The Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index is the most detailed assessment of the largest meat, dairy and farmed fish producers in the world. Rankings for each of the 60 companies assessed are determined by a risk and opportunity score across environmental, social, and governance-related criteria including greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation and food safety.
Mowi has consistently scored at the top of the index since its inception, due to its robust policies on responsible sourcing, animal welfare, environmental sustainability and more.
Speaking about Mowi’s ranking on the Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index, CEO Ivan Vindheim said: “This shows again that Mowi is at the forefront of sustainable food production. I am proud and humbled to lead an organization that is a recognized leader in sustainable food production.”
Salmon tops the rankings
The 2022 report found that aquaculture companies, primarily salmon companies, continue to perform better than land animal protein producers. In fact, Mowi is joined in the top four ranked companies by fellow aquaculture companies Grieg Seafood ASA and Lerøy Seafood Group ASA, who are ranked 2nd and 4th respectively.
Gideon Pringle, Managing Director at Mowi Canada East says: “Our farmers work hard every day in all kinds of weather to provide our customers with healthy and tasty salmon, so it’s very rewarding to have a respected third-party validate our employee’s efforts. The Coller FAIIR ranking provide that seafood is an inherently smart food for consumers, and salmon in particular is a great choice for families seeking a healthy, tasty and sustainable meal.”
