Minimizing ecologically sustainable footprint begins with Nextrusion’s location in the Southeastern region of the United States which is located in one of the US agricultural epicenters growing and manufacturing all the ingredients used by Nextrusion. As a result, incoming transportation miles are minimized. And because the manufacturing facility is located near the intersection of major east-west and north-south US interstates, outbound deliveries are on their way quickly and efficiently, thereby substantially reducing Nextrusion’s transportation carbon footprint and increasing efficiencies.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
The harvests of the small forage fish in our oceans that represent a vital link in the food chain have been maxed out as well. These tiny fish are converted almost exclusively into fishmeal and fish oil for the aquaculture industry. They have been characterized as the most exploited fish in the world.
At Nextrusion, we are doing our part to help. This is why we embrace the use of fish meal and fish oil replacements when it makes sense to do so. Together we can make a difference.
