Bakkafrost has underlined the growing importance to the UK market of its expanding salmon farming operation, the largest in the Faroe Islands, with the publication of a two year plan which addresses important sustainability issues.

Against a background of very high (96%) customer satisfaction, the employment of more than 1,100 people on the islands and the  successful roll out of cleaner fish its salmon farms, Bakkafrost has opened one of the most modern processing plants in the world.

The company has now announced plans for a new biogas plant, using waste products from fish and dairy farming, to produce energy and fertiliser, thus further enabling the implementation of a sustainable feed policy.

Bakkafrost produced almost 700,000 salmon meals, fillets and portions a day for the UK and other global markets in 2017 an is currently growing its market share worldwide.

“Operating in a small country like the Faroe Islands restricts growth so it is important for us to be as efficient and sustainable as possible and to continually innovate,” says Torkil Davidsen, head of UK operations.

He adds that through 2018 the company would be looking for additional customers for its unique breed of salmon, which are high in Omega-3, whilst starting production of exciting new salmon fresh fillets and portions.
