Aker BioMarine is a vertically integrated biotechnology company and the world’s leading supplier of krill-derived biotech products. The company is supplying krill marine ingredients through an optimized value chain from raw materials to customer.

Aker BioMarine utilizes its unique krill harvesting methods to develop its own downstream operations within the high value added nutraceutical and aquaculture feed markets.

Krill derived products, such as krill oil and meal, have a high content of bioactive ingredients, e.g. Omega-3 bound phospholipids, choline and astaxanthin, which have documented positive effects on both humans and animals.

Superba KrillTM is the company’s krill oil nutraceutical line for humans and QrillTM covers all krill meal products for both the aquaculture and pet food markets.

Superba Krill is the world’s most researched krill oil brand. The naturally occurring nutrients in krill oil offer many benefits supporting the heart, liver, brain, skin and joints, allowing for optimal end product differentiation by brand owners.

Aker BioMarine has a wide set of capabilities within nutraceuticals (dietary supplements and functional foods) and is an experienced player in nutraceutical applications of lipids, product development, and intellectual property rights (IPR), R&D and product commercialization.

Market Opportunities in Krill Oil

18 May 2017 --- Aker BioMarine recently reported how the company managed to grow sales and improve operations in the still-challenging omega-3 market, and continues to heavily invest in new technology and the development of new krill-derived products. Matts Johansen, CEO of Aker BioMarine, is satisfied with the result, but admitted that 2016 was still a challenging year for the company. Johansen said. “Although 2016 was a good year for Aker BioMarine, we posted slightly negative earnings after tax. The investments needed to build a supply chain for krill-based products, the resources needed to innovate and document their biological effects, and the time needed to develop new markets are reflected in our earnings.”
