Aller Aqua Zambia’s factory keeps its pace

  (ZAMBIA, 1/7/2017)

The factory building for fish feed of Aller Aqua Zambia Limited is ongoing and on schedule, so the company hopes to begin production of high quality extruded fish feed for aquaculture by September 2017.

While the new factory is under construction in Siavonga, Aller Aqua Zambia has made the first sales agreement with one of the largest tilapia producers in the world – Yalelo Limited.

The aquaculture company has plans to grow the production of tilapia to 30.000 tonnes in Zambia within the next few years, and this fast expansion will help secure Aller Aqua Zambia Limited’s success in the African country.

The new factory will have a production capacity of 50.000 tonnes of fish feed per year and will be the most technically advanced fish feed factory in Southern Africa.

In addition to the factory in Denmark, the company has built factories in Poland (2001), Germany (2007), and Egypt (2015).

Currently, the Danish company is building in both Zambia and China as well as extending the capacity in Egypt with a third production line.

Both of the new factories as well as the third production line in Egypt are expected to be inaugurated in 2017.

Henrik Halken, who is in charge of Aller Aqua’s factories on the African continent, explained that the company is investing a total of USD 10 million, as well as a significant amount in Egypt.

“With the investment in Zambia, we will be the market leader in Africa in terms of modern and environmentally friendly fish feeds for aquaculture. This will enable us to expand our sales not only in Zambia but also the surrounding countries,“ he added.

He also pointed out that during recent years the group has started sales companies in Nigeria, Ghana and Kenya.

The executive highlighted that the African market is expected to grow significantly in the coming years. The number of inhabitants is rising quickly and the population will need healthy food which is high in protein. Fish farming and locally produced fish are part of the solution for this, and fish farming can further help people get a livelihood and get out of poverty.

In Zambia approximately 95 per cent of the raw materials Aller Aqua will use comes from the local market.
