In recent years, the BioMar business unit in Brande, Denmark has experienced a significant growth in sales volume as well as an expanding customer base. The factory in Denmark is today delivering feed to customers across most of Europe and has a very strong foothold in the eastern European countries as well as in the RAS segment across all BioMar markets.

“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”, explained Carlos

The new line is expected to be ready in Q2 2019 with a budget of DKK 90 million (approx. US$14,420,927). The ffeedmill in Denmark will, after the capacity expansion, 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 is highly recognized for its products as well as expertise within this segment. BioMar states that the new line enables a significant step forward indeveloping RAS feed with even higher growth performance and physical as well as nutritional quality.

“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”, explains Carlos Diaz, CEO BioMar Group.
