E WEB Goal 02 E WEB Goal 03

1 - Safe and healthy food

One of our most important tasks is to secure safe food production. Strict procedures, supervisions, controls and systems for traceability we prevent food from contributing to foodborne infection among people, animals and plants. Our food must also contribute to a balanced, healthy and nutritious diet. Nortura contributes for Norway to be self-servent on eggs and meat.

2 - Food on nature’s premises

Harsh weather conditions and rugged nature makes livestock farming Norway’s most important agricultural resource. Nature and biological processes are the basis of Nortura’s food production, and we must keep it this way for next generation. Amongst our initiatives you will find several climate initiatives to reduce emissions of methane in agriculture and co2 from transport.

3 - Contribute to a viable agriculture

Nortura’s main objective is to facilitate egg and meat production nationwide and to maintain local food production in a sparsely populated country. Our mandate is to maintain profitability for the farmer in all regions, and to strengthen and develop a sustainable and viable agriculture.

5 - With care for people and animals

Animal welfare is a prerequisite for working with egg and meat production.
