Our Cod AND a Blue Future
Norcod has reached many milestones and achieved its production targets since the company’s inception. A focus on animal welfare and efficient production with a low CO2 footprint is the foundation of Norcod’s existence. Our mission is to help ensure that more of the world’s food production comes from the sea. Blue value creation within the existing framework for management and sustainability is our approach to the blue future.
FARMED COD MEETS 5 OF THE UN’S 17 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
THE FUTURE IS IN THE SEA
COD IS NOT OFF THE MENU
By 2050, the world’s population will be around nine billion people, a third more than at the turn of the millennium. With more than a billion people already malnourished, the world must produce twice as much food by 2050 as in 2010 to meet needs.
With over 70% of the earth being covered by the ocean, but less than 2% of the world’s food production taking place there, the potential for growth is in the sea and not on land. As such, we believe the future will be blue.
Norcod's business model meets major global challenges
HOW DO WE FEED 10 BILLION PEOPLE
It is estimated that the world population will be reaching 10bn people by 2050, a 56% increase compared to 2010.
The main challenge is to produce more food using less land.
Norwegian cod-farming venture Norcod has successfully raised new investment totalling NOK 105m (EUR 10.5m) in its ambitious journey to become the world's leading producer of responsibly farmed cod on an industrial scale.
