ProChaete

innovative feed additive

Better taste, more biomass and better feed production

CEP PRO is our innovative feed additive. It is crafted from farmed polychaetes and rich in proteins and high in EPA/DHA, offering several functional benefits.

The technical benefits of CEP PRO will give you a more efficient feed production.

Main Ingredient

Polychaete

Enhanced Palatability

Great taste leading to higher feed intake, subsequently increasing biomass production.

Taste transformation

Farmed polycheates elevate the taste and freshness of your aquaculture produce, delivering a better tasting fish.

Better feed production

CEP PRO will allow you to produce at higher capacity or lower energy levels, delivering a more efficient feed production.

How to use CEP PRO

Functional benefits for your feed. 

CEP PRO improves the palatability of your feed, leading to a higher feed intake and enhances feed digestibility. These two functions combined give a larger biomass and less waste. Adding it to finishing feed imparts a delightful fresh taste, favored by most customers.

The benefits of our products are sought after by high-end retailers and often recommended by them. So, not only will you have an ingredient that makes your feed better, but it will also give you access to high-end markets.

An optimal inclusion rate of 15-20%, CEP PRO will allow you to use fewer other costly ingredients.

 

Technical benefits for your feed production.

CEP PRO also has a major technical benefit; it allows you to increase your production. The viscosity in CEP PRO helps lubricate the extruders and allows you to produce at a higher capacity or to use less energy.

The feed you produce will have higher durability and produce less dust.

The polychaete advantage

Our tests reveal that polychaete yield additional benefits.

Feed economics

All these benefits are not worth much unless the numbers add up.

So allow us to show you how you can make a better feed that is more sustainable while also producing great benefits you can pass on to your customers (presumably at a higher price point). Or to use CEP PRO to produce the same quality feed as you do today at a lower cost, giving you a more flexible feed with a greater margin.

The example refers to a study by University of Idaho using trout. By using of 2% polychaete the final weight increased 21%.
