French insect producer, InnovaFeed, sees Alf-Helge Aarskog, previously CEO of Mowi, appointed to its board of investors.
Clément Ray, co-founder and CEO of InnovaFeed, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Alf-Helge onboard as our development gathers momentum. He is a highly experienced figure in the aquaculture and wider food industries, and his insights will be extremely valuable for our future expansion.”
Aarskog said: “I’m delighted and excited to be joining the board at InnovaFeed. I believe that sustainable aquaculture is in dire need of high performing protein sources to support its growth. In my view, InnovaFeed has developed the most scalable, sustainable and competitive value proposition on the market, and I look forward to bringing my expertise to the table to support them as they develop globally.”
Holding an MSC in fish nutrition from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB), Aarskog was the former CEO of Mowi (2010 – 2020) and Lerøy Seafood Group ASA (2009 – 2010), respectively the largest and second largest salmon producers in the world.
Prior to those roles, he was executive vice president at Lerøy Seafood Group, CEO of its subsidiary, Lerøy Midnor AS, and production director at Fjord Seafood, a company that later merged with Mowi.
