Those who dare to dream and chase what they want, will always be recognised at some point. It is with great pleasure that we were recognised on May 14, 2013 as the 2012 Europe Frost & Sullivan Award for Entrepreneurial Company of the Year.
We do not operate Ocean Harvest to win awards but it is always nice to be recognised as it tells us we are going in the right direction. We have positioned itself as a provider of cost-effective, eco-friendly, sustainable and natural feed products which successfully tackle the key issues facing the industry: rising prices, sustainability, safety, and quality.
Oceanfeed has been developed, tested and patented in advance of its use as a feed ingredient for the salmon, shrimp and pig markets and we are now proudly and rapidly growing sales in these markets. With production facilities in Ireland, Canada and Vietnam and offices in North America, Asia and Australia, a strong global focus is at the core of our business plan. In addition, we have developed other products for the abalone and sea urchin markets and for the equine, cattle and domestic pet markets and our research platform has the potential for much broader application.
“Companies like OHT understand and effectively anticipate customer needs by developing innovative feed solutions. The company draws on decades of R&D experience to produce leading-edge products for the salmon, pig, shrimp and pet feed industries.” noted Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Anjaneya Reddy.
The company’s OceanFeedTM products deliver unique benefits to food producers. Healthy, economical growth is promoted and synthetic additives from animal feed are replaced or eliminated allowing food producers to achieve significantly improved yields as well as taste, flavour and texture, whilst complying with organic standards and ever-stricter regulatory restrictions.
