Aker BioMarine in brief

Aker BioMarine is an integrated biotechnology company – uniquely positioned to create value krill derived biotech products. The company is supplying biomarine ingredients through an optimized value chain from raw materials to customer.

Aker BioMarine utilizes its unique krill harvesting to develop its own downstream operations within the high value added nutraceutical and aquaculture feed markets.
Krill derived products, such as oil and meal, have a high content of bioactive ingredients, e.g. Omega-3 bound phospholipids and astaxanthin, which have documented positive effects on both humans and animals.
Aker BioMarine has registered Superba as the company`s brand name for nutraceutical and Qrill™ as the company’s brand name for its krill meal and krill oil products for aquaculture. Qrill™ has proven benefits to competing products in the aquaculture market.

Following the merger with Natural in June 2007, 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.
