The expansion is part of the salmon-based ingredients producer’s plans to boost capacity and quality.
Situated next to the Skaganeset coastline, the 4500m2 facility houses the company’s unique and sustainable proprietary biorefining technology. Operating 24/7, this patented continuous enzymatic hydrolysis process gently separates fresh raw materials into premium food and feed ingredients, preserving their nutritional properties. This process enables Biomega to upcycle and fully utilise food grade rest streams with zero waste.
Andrew Dustan, CTO at Biomega, who managed the expansion project for the company, said: “Investment in the raw materials facility is key to our growth strategy at Biomega. While the project has not been without challenges, due to the pandemic, an unusually cold winter and the need to continue production throughout the project, we are pleased to see the completed facility now in operation.
