BioMar signed a letter of intent with Lighthouse Finance-owned Quality Salmon Sotenäs AB in November 2020. The agreement states that BioMar will provide feed solutions for the Atlantic salmon in Quality Salmon’s land-based RAS facility once production commences in 2022 in Sotenäs, Sweden.
“Investing SEK17-20 billion ($2 billion) in the industrial park and aiming for future production of 100,000 tons of salmon per year demonstrates our level of ambition pretty clearly. We want to do more than just framing the production of salmon. That is why we have chosen to partner with BioMar, as we share a mutual vision that sustainability and innovation are the key drivers for success,” stated Roy W. Høiås, CEO of Lighthouse Finance A/S.
“At BioMar we have been working with feed solutions for RAS for more than 20 years and we are excited to partner with Quality Salmon Sotenäs to join them on their journey,” said Ole Christensen, vice president of BioMar, who heads the EMEA Division and the RAS segment.
“We have a strong focus on finding innovative and sustainable feed solutions and being a part of a project that has a focus on circular economy and adoption of new raw materials, makes it a good match with the way we do our business,” Christensen said.
BioMar strives for innovative solutions satisfying the needs of the salmon as well as meeting the demand from consumers for more sustainable food choices. “We believe projects like Quality Salmon Sotenäs will be significant for meeting the demand for food in the future and look forward to cooperating with the companies behind the Quality Salmon Sotenäs project in Sweden, as well as for similar projects in other places around the globe,” concluded Christensen.
