Aller Aqua opens Serbian factory
Aller Aqua has opened a new factory in Serbia, focusing on the country's main aquaculture species, carp.
The new factory is Aller Aqua’s seventh, and is situated in Secanj, Serbia, close to the Romanian border. From here a dedicated Serbian team are ready to make an impact on the market, particularly for carp feed. Petar Pejčić and Dimitrije Matic will head the factory, supported by Aller Aqua’s head office.
Chief executive and owner, Hans Erik Bylling, explained. “We have been present in the Balkans for a long time and had a wish of dedicating more resources to the area. Then we had the opportunity to include Petar and Dimitrije in Aller Aqua, and shortly after we found the factory. The plan really fell into place. We are in a phase of rapid growth, and we are pleased to include Balkan and specifically Serbia in this growth. We see a lot of potential here,” he said.
Aller Aqua produces feed for more than 30 different species of fish, and carp is one of its core species. Carp production in Serbia accounts for approximately 85% of the country’s total aquaculture production, and this is where Aller Aqua will focus its efforts.
The factory is already up and running but will host an official inauguration in the spring. There are further plans to expand the premises and an export licence has been secured for CEFTA and EU countries.
