QRILL Pet is a product of Aker BioMarine, a leading biotechnology company developing and supplying krill-derived products for consumer health and animal nutrition. The company’s fully transparent value chain stretches from sustainable krill harvesting in pristine Antarctic waters through its Montevideo logistics hub, Houston production plant, and all the way to customers around the world.
When developing our functional marine ingredient for pets, we kept our focus on the needs of pets and pet food formulators. Aimed at keeping pets healthy, QRILL Pet naturally delivers long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, marine proteins, choline and the antioxidant astaxanthin.
An important ingredient for pet food, omega-3s have demonstrated great health benefits for pets. The unique nutritional advantage of Antarctic krill is the superior bioavailability of its omega-3s. The omega-3s in QRILL Pet are mostly bound to phospholipids, which differentiates them from some traditional omega-3 sources.
Known as the foundation of all cells, phospholipids are more effectively incorporated into tissues and cells. Recognized for its health-promoting suppression of free radicals, the astaxanthin in QRILL Pet keeps the product fresh and protects its omega-3 fatty acids from oxidation. Rich in marine fats and proteins, QRILL Pet is highly palatable to our furry family members.
Our mission is to make our functional marine ingredient available through some of the super premium pet foods around the world, so more pets can benefit from the nutrients available in QRILL Pet. Since Antarctic krill is protected from overfishing by CCAMLR and Aker BioMarine Antarctic AS is the only Marine Stewardship Certified (MSC) krill supplier, QRILL Pet is an attractive feed ingredient that ensures optimal health of pets in a sustainable manner.
