BioMar Group will invest in a new DKK90m highly specialised line dedicated to fry and RAS feed production to enable its Denmark-based factory to deliver 150,000t of feed per year.

The new line will boost the factory’s flexibility, quality and production performance and is expected to be ready in Q2 2019. As BioMar’s largest production unit in Europe outside the salmon market, the factory delivers mainly feed for species such trout, eel, sturgeon and salmon in RAS, but in total produces feed for more than 40 species.

“We are already recognized in the market for the high quality and performance of our fry and RAS feed from the factory in Denmark and the factory is often delivering feed to support other business units. This is simply a step making sure we stay in front, delivering a market leading customer value proposition in terms of agility, quality and performance,” explained Carlos Diaz, CEO of BioMar Group.

“Solid growth”

He added: “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. 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.”

BioMar said it expected the new line to be a significant step forward in developing RAS feed with even higher growth performance and physical as well as nutritional quality.
