IFFO is an international trade organisation that represents and promotes the marine ingredients industry, such as fishmeal, fish oil and other related industries.
Marine ingredients are nutritious products used mainly for aquafeed, land animal feed as well as for human consumption and are derived from marine organisms such as fish, krill, shellfish and algae. IFFO's members reside in more than 50 countries, account for over 60% of world production and 80% of the fishmeal and fish oil traded worldwide. IFFO is an accredited Observer to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).
The main finding of an international project led by the University of Washington marks a good start of the year regarding oceans’ health. It can be read as a clear indication that positive changes can be initiated in reduction fisheries. This can be done by applying fishery science to the fisheries which don’t have appropriate forms of fisheries assessment, management, and enforcement.
The marine ingredients industry is delighted with the European Commission’s recent announcement of a European Green Deal to become the world’s first climate-neutral continent by 2050. IFFO, The Marine Ingredients Organisation is fully convinced that growth does not always mean more, but also better. In our view, this deal will trigger even more innovation in the sector and contribute to increased efficiency and competitiveness.
