CFEED - Unleashing the power of nature

Unleashing the power of nature

Nature is wise, and when it comes to optimal early larval nutrition, copepods are nature's 1st choice. Marine larvae have virtually evolved through millions of years to consume copepods as their starter feed.

CFEED is a company that strive to sustainably improve what nature offers already. Therefore, we are proud to be the world’s leading large-scale producer of high-quality farmed copepods.

Our C-podz offer properties beyond what nature offers:

  • Stable high levels of essential fatty acids DHA (25%) and EPA (13%)
  • Protein content close to 70%
  • No need for enrichment
  • Stable and predictable quality

Bio-security & sustainability

C-podz are intensively farmed at our land-based facility in Vanvikan, Norway. This gives us a stable production throughout the year, with no season variations.

With a closed and fully controlled production CFEED can deliver a bio-safe product. High level of water treatment throughout the whole production process eliminates risk of contamination. The production is regularly examined for both bacterial and viral pathogens. The eggs are disinfected before storage, and we have protocols for disinfecting the eggs after delivery to our customers.

Committed to the UN SDGS
Based on our potential for real impact CFEED has decided to contribute in particular to the achievement of the following UN SDGs
