Aquaculture sourcing standards
Ensuring a long-term supply of quality raw materials
When sourcing and selecting raw materials, we demand high quality, sustainably sourced ingredients. We focus on ensuring that our actions do not compromise the supply of marine resources for future generations. We require all our suppliers to follow Cargill’s responsible sourcing policies.
Our supplier engagement process helps identify and manage potential risks. The system includes supply chain risk analysis and a thorough process for selecting, approving, auditing and controlling raw material suppliers. We monitor and audit our suppliers regularly to ensure compliance.
We harness the breadth of Cargill’s business operations to bring aquaculture solutions to producers and feed retailers. We identify co-products from manufacturing processes and find innovative ways to use them as sources of nutrients that can be delivered in the form of ingredients, additives and compound feeds. Co-product sourcing allows us to utilize nutrients that might otherwise have been regarded as waste. By capturing their nutrient value, Cargill is able to reduce the loss of valuable nutrients, improve food security and enhance environmental sustainability.
Cargill traces and follows materials, ingredients and products throughout the aquaculture supply chain. We source, trace and certify GMO-free feeds for customers that require this option.
