Skretting launches next-gen grower feed for shrimp
Skretting has launched Xpand, the company's next generation of premium grower feed for shrimp, following an extensive and successful local validation, the company announced on May 20.
Xpand is the result of a five-year R&D effort, and is built upon a thorough understanding of the digestive physiology of shrimp. This development work is focused on three pillars: improved growth, improved nutrition and pond support
According to Skretting, feeding Xpand enables farmers to reduce the associated costs and impacts of farming in exposed water locations by harvesting earlier at the same size. Alternatively, they can produce larger shrimp within their usual production schedules.
"Whether it's bigger, more valuable products, or it's reducing the grow-out stage to get shrimp to market faster, Xpand is a game-changing solution for many of our customers in Vietnam," said Lenaïg Richard Breivik, marketing manager (shrimp) at Skretting. "Now, farmers in Latin America are in a position to make the decisions that are best suited to their own unique operations."
