Inka’s new Bergen fish processing plant gears up for business
Family-owned Norwegian salmon and fjord trout processing company Inka AS has confirmed that its new factory in Bergen will soon be fully operational.
Following a EUR 13 million (USD 15.3 million) investment, the 5,500 square meter facility is complete and now going through a series of tests and equipment fine-tuning, reported local independent newspaper Midtsiden.
The 3,000-square-meter ground floor includes a freezer and two Marel production lines. It will initially operate with 80 staff.
Once fully-operational, it will target an annual production capacity of around 12,000 metric tons (MT).
Inka’s other factory, located in Os, produces around 40 different fresh and frozen products and has a capacity of between 5,000 and 6,000 MT of finished goods.
In May last year, Inka secured a large contract with existing customer Seaborn AS, guaranteeing 13,000 MT of product orders a year.
