Skretting opens fish feed plant in Turkey

Skretting has officially opened its new fish feed plant near Bodrum, Turkey. The first production line is scheduled to be in action by May 2009. Subsequent building phases will expand the plant to three lines with a total capacity of 100,000 tonnes.

Alberto Allodi, Managing Director of Skretting East Mediterranean, comments, "Investing in the new plant demonstrates our commitment to aquaculture in Turkey." He adds, "Further underlining our commitment, we are changing the name of our Turkish business from Trouw Yem to Skretting Yem.

The name and the plant show that we believe Turkish aquaculture has a great future and they place Skretting firmly at the centre of this growing industry."

"We will start feed production next year with ongrowing feeds, both for the trout market and for marine species such as sea bass and sea bream. In addition to the production facility, we are extending the warehouse from 800 to 2,000 square metres to increase flexibility and speed of response to customer orders."
