BioMar Group has invested in additional capacity for its factory in Denmark. The new line will be highly specialized and dedicated to fry and RAS feed production enabling the factory to increase flexibility, quality and production performance.
\"BioMar has experienced a solid growth in market share on our core markets in Europe and the factory in Brande has through the last years been expanding capacity by removing bottle necks and optimizing operational processes,\" explained Carlos Diaz, CEO BioMar Group. \"We foresee that the growth will continue and we need to take a significant leap forward to make sure we can deliver on the future demands from the customers.\"
The new line is expected to be ready in Q2 2019 with a budget of DKK 90 million. After the capacity expansion, the factory will be able to deliver 150.000 tons of feed per year. It is BioMar\'s largest production unit in Europe outside the salmon markets. The factory is designed for agility with a flexible production set-up. It delivers mainly feed for species such trout, eel, sturgeon and salmon in RAS; however in total the factory produces feed for more than 40 species.
The factory has been a pioneer within RAS feed, and BioMar states that the new line will imply a significant step forward developing RAS feed with even higher growth performance and physical as well as nutritional quality.
