This is us
We are part of Aker BioMarine
QRILL Pet is a brand of the biotech innovator and Antarctic krill-harvesting company, Aker BioMarine. Our core business consists of harvesting, production, sales, and marketing of krill products to other businesses worldwide. We have a fully transparent value chain that stretches from sustainable krill harvesting in pristine Antarctic waters through our Montevideo logistics hub, and all the way to customers around the world.
Our brand QRILL Pet focuses on pets' health and well-being, aiming at keeping them healthy. It also carries the highest-ranking sustainability certificate (MSC) for marine ingredients.
Keeping pets healthy, QRILL Pet delivers long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, marine proteins, choline, and the antioxidant astaxanthin. Being made entirely of Antarctic krill, QRILL Pet is a functional marine ingredient that focuses on the need of pets.
It all begins in Antarctica, where the cleanest waters on earth are. Within approved areas, we harvest krill with our own custom-built krill harvesting vessels, Antarctic Endurance, Saga Sea and Antarctic Sea, and our supply vessel, La Manche.
Behind all this, there are many years of experience and technical know-how so that we can safely navigate and harvest in these rough, unforgiving Antarctic waters.
Aker BioMarine is committed to continuously increase scientific documentation of health and nutrition benefits – whether for people, pets, or aqua culture. We pride ourselves on exploring all of the potential that krill has to offer, and we know this that is just the beginning.
Our harvesting method
To protect the environment, we have developed our own method of harvesting krill, called Eco-Harvesting®. This method almost eliminates catching other species than krill.
Is QRILL Pet sustainable?
Yes, our krill comes from one of the most sustainable fisheries in the world, with 100% traceability guarantee. Watch the video where we explain how come our functional marine ingredient is one of the most sustainable marine ingredients for pets.
Together we are stronger
We are proud to call our customers, our partners. By working closely with our customers we help them develop and market great pet food products. Together, we can advance krill science, optimize pet food formulations, and educate pet parents about the importance of choosing the best omega-3 source for pets.
