Indonesia’s Suri Tani Pemuka (STP), Japfa Group’s aquaculture arm, has successfully reduced the use of fishmeal in its shrimp feed. CEO Ardi Budiono said they reduced dietary fishmeal from 15% to 8% without compromising growth performance, and sales grew tremendously. “When we introduced it in 2018, it only accounted for 24% of our total shrimp feed sales volume. Sales have since tripled, accounting for 72% of the total shrimp feed sales volume by August 2021,” he revealed.
