Krill player Aker BioMarine has been named as Norway’s most innovative company by leading magazine Innovasjonsmagasinet, the company said.

Norweigan magazine Innovasjonsmagasinet ranked 25 of the country’s most innovative companies – with krill and biotechnology firm Aker taking the top spot for the first time.

According to the jury, Aker was recognised as a top innovator is a result of many things including its integrated approach to biotechnology and global market leader position in krill-based ingredients.

“Sustainability and traceability are imperative to their business model and the company has complete control over its value chain. Innovation and education are key driving forces behind the company’s success,”​ said the judges.

Truls Berg, the editor of Innovation magazine and head of the jury, noted that a common theme in most businesses making the list is that they have succeeded in expanding their market to cover large parts of the world.

"We are proud of this recognition and honored to be named with these other outstanding Norwegian companies. It is remarkable that the job we are doing in the omega-3 market is recognized alongside of these other businesses and industries,”​ said Matts Johansen, CEO of Aker BioMarine.

“We are committed to innovation, product development and new technology and as a pioneer in the field of krill harvesting in the Antarctica, our goal is to improve human and planetary health," ​he added.
