BioMar reports successful test run of feed production in Turkey
The BioMar-Sagun fish feed factory in Turkey has successfully run its first test production. \"We expect start-up tests of the Söke factory to run until mid-July and will then then supply locally produced grower feeds for trout, sea bass and sea bream to our customers.\"
The BioMar-Sagun fish feed factory in Turkey has successfully run its first test of a full production cycle. Construction of the factory, located in Söke, is close to being finalized.
\"We look very much forward to supplying our customers with efficient feed produced in this state of the art factory,\" stated Bora Aydemir, General Manager of BioMar-Sagun. \"We expect start-up tests of the Söke factory to run until mid-July and will then then supply locally produced grower feeds for trout, sea bass and sea bream to our customers while the more specialised feed types in the BioMar-Sagun product portfolio, like hatchery diets and fry feeds, are being produced on other BioMar factories.\"
According to Aydemir, the first BioMar-Sagun test production was quite modest, volume wise, compared to full scale production. He expressed satisfaction to see that the test production was successful, but underlined that the company still has a strong focus on ensuring that all production and feed quality parameters are stable when scaling up volumes and when producing a diversity of feed types.
\"It matters a lot to us to secure that this factory is a very strong platform for the delivery of the well know BioMar feed concepts that allow our customers to obtain better and more stable production results,\" explained Aydemir.
The BioMar-Sagun factory combines local agility and a global mind-set: closeness to Turkish fish farmers secures agility to react on the special requirements of the market, while benefitting of the know-how of BioMar within areas like fish feed development, sourcing, and feed manufacturing.
