Qrill Pet, a functional marine ingredient for pet food from Aker BioMarine, has received accreditation from the Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC) for its “outstanding sustainability efforts”.
The PSC, in conjunction with verification partner Planet+Purpose Solutions, awarded the accreditation for the Qrill Pet’s commitment to sustainable krill harvesting practices and its dedication to the pet industry.
Andrew Fuente, sales director – Americas at Aker BioMarine said: “We want happy and healthy pets along with a healthy earth. To that end, it’s very important for us to further strengthen our efforts for Qrill Pet, and by working with the PSC, we are taking our sustainability position to the next level.
“This accreditation allows us to be a big part in creating a more sustainable pet industry and we believe that our customers will see the benefits and value in this.”
The Pet Sustainability Accreditation means that a company has measured, third party verified, and committed to continuously improving the impact of its business operations by aligning the assessment and improvement of its impact with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Qrill Pet became a member of the PSC in 2020.
