Former Seafood Connection operations lead joins Veramaris' business development team
Veramaris has welcome former Seafood Connection operations lead Johan Brouwer to join its growing business development team.
Brouwer will focus his expertise and industry connections on growing the European retail and food service seafood markets for Veramaris.
Commenting on his appointment, Brouwer said: "I am really excited to be joining Veramaris at such a pivotal time for the aquaculture industry, when there is real potential to make a difference to the environmental issues that need to be addressed.
"Veramaris' sustainability value proposition, including its recent joint certification from ASC-MSC, gives retailers and the food service sector a viable solution for their seafood sustainability challenges and I am looking forward to working with our partners to help them achieve their sustainable seafood goals.
"Veramaris offers a game-changing solution and I am thrilled to be a part of the company as its growth accelerates."
Veramaris chief executive officer Karim Kurmaly said: "Aquaculture needs to scale up to meet the world's increasing demand for seafood but it can only do so sustainably. This is where Veramaris comes in; our algae oil, naturally rich in both EPA and DHA Omega-3 helps to reduce the industry's reliance on wild catch fish, and we also have the capability to produce at scale a natural and sustainable alternative to fish oil.
"Our success depends on our people and I am thrilled to welcome Johan to our talented team. His proven track record in the industry will be a huge asset as we continue on our mission to expand the world's supply of certified sustainable EPA and DHA Omega-3."
