Aker BioMarine was named the most innovative company after a year-long journey in Europe's biggest and most prestigious business competition, the European Business Awards.
Aker BioMarine was one of 13 winners following a final live judging session, after the competition began last year with over 112,000 businesses from 34 countries initially considered.
“For us, innovation is a high priority and something that requires dedication every day. This prize is a recognition of our employees who are working for constant improvement and innovation in Aker BioMarine,” says Matts Johansen, CEO, Aker BioMarine.
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards says: "Our winners are the gold standard for business excellence. They are also powerful examples of the growth potential for European business in today’s highly competitive global marketplace."
Over 450 successful business leaders from across Europe came together at the two day event with politicians, ambassadors and academics to the European Business Awards that sets out to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe.
In 2017, Aker BioMarine won the award as Norway's most innovative company. In recent years, Aker BioMarine has made significant investments in researching and developing new products.
"Over the past decade, we have been driven by our mission to improve human and planetary health. Innovation and people are the cornerstones of our success; we are explorers who think outside the ordinary while keeping our feet firmly on the ground,” says Johansen.
Through extensive innovation and research projects in cooperation with major educational institutions, Aker BioMarine contributes to the development of skills and value creation in Norway. Eco-Harvesting technology and research on krill in fish feed are examples of this. Research and innovation are the cornerstones of the company, from the development of the company's harvesting and production technology to product development, commercialization, and marketing.
