Sustainability within Neerlandia Urk

Neerlandia Urk is actively contributing to a more sustainable fish industry by fully committed to recyclable EPS packaging and maximizing reuse to reduce waste. We reduce our waste streams by entering into strategic partnerships, such as with the Foundation Against Food Waste. All by-products from our fish processing get a new purpose at a plant in Rastede, where they are turned into valuable products. With our advanced water treatment systems, we ensure minimal impact on the aquatic environment. Furthermore, we minimize on the use of packaging materials, energy and water. These measures demonstrate how Neerlandia Urk responsibly and actively contributes to sustainability within the fish industry.

Packaging recycling

We work with EPS, cardboard and plastic packaging that is easily recyclable.

Food Waste

We work with STV (Foundation Against Food Waste) and we minimize waste.

Utilizing fish residues

All residual products are manufactured at a plant in Rastede, Germany. This is where parts are processed and frozen.


“The earth, received from God the Creator, is only on loan to us. Our vocation is a serving task to manage it.” Psalm 24:1 & psalm 8:7

In addition, 0.84 grams of EPA and DHA contribute to brain health and vision. The high protein content of 20.71% supports muscle repair and building, while vitamin D3 and phosphorus, at 0.287 milligrams per kilogram and 0.24 grams per 100 grams, respectively, are essential for strong bones and efficient energy metabolism.
