Initiating a North Atlantic Network on Sustainable Holothurian Technology and Innovation

C Food Norway’s main goal has been to develop tasty seafood, using by-products from whitefish. This unutilized resource from existing ocean fisheries is a hidden gem that represents a great commercial growth potential. By transforming new resources and fisheries/ food processing by-products into healthy human food, we provide to a constantly growing population new seafood choices in a sustainable way. C Food Norway is interested in developing new value chains for sea cucumbers from Norway.

C Food Norway will benefit from the sea cucumber networking platform by gaining access to the sea cucumber library and extending the current commercial collaboration network and gaining more insight into ongoing R & D activities for sea cucumbers. The project will strengthen the possibilities to succeed with development of new products from Atlantic sea cucumbers. We have a special focus on new products and bioactive compounds. We expect the projects to offer us new business opportunities.
