The company Tecnologica de Alimentos SA(TASA) inaugurated its new plant Friday in Chimbote, Ancash, engineered to produce the finest quality fishmeal and fish oil.

The firm, a world leader in the fishmeal and fish oil production sector, invested PEN 78 million (USD 26.8 million) to execute the project.

This new plant will have an efficiency of 99.99 per cent of the availing of fishery resources and an energy savings of 34 per cent with respect to traditional processes, Andina reports.

Although the construction and assembly were supervised by Italian, German, Norwegian and Danish firms – on the basis of their proprietary complementary technologies with designs drafted by TASA engineers – manpower and contractors were Peruvian.

Two years ago, the firm committed to authorities and the community to transfer its fishmeal plant from the area of La Florida, in the port of Chimbote, to the industrial area of 27 de Octobre.

For this reason, and after more than 40 years of operation, the old plant was closed and the construction of the new one began, with the state-of-the- art technology necessary to produce resources in a clean and environmentally friendly manner.

The new facilities boast a processing capacity of 140 tonnes of fish per hour and were built in a period of nine months, using more than 600,000 hours of specialist manpower, mainly from Chimbote.

“The technological improvements introduced in this plant allow us to produce special fishmeal of high protein content, as well as fish oil for human consumption with Omega 3, a product of high nutritional impact,” indicated TASA’s general manager, Carlos Pinillos.

The technological innovations are expected to allow the re-use of steam, instead of spewing it into the atmosphere. In addition, the water used to transport fish from vessels to the plant will be clarified before returning to the sea, in accordance with environmental exigencies.

In fulfilling the quality standards of the plant and its products as required at the international level, TASA will be able to commercialise its production in the markets of the European Union, the US and Asia.

In february of 2010, the International Fishmeal and Fish Oil Organisation (IFFO) awarded TASA a certification for its responsible provision of fishmeal and fish oil.

The plant Callao Norte of TASA became the first company of the sector to receive the new certification IFFO Global Standard. IFFO created the Global Certification Standard and Programme for the Responsible Supply of Fishmeal and Fish Oil to showcase commitment to responsible practices in the areas of food security, obtaining and distribution of raw materials.

“The continuous development of the global fishmeal and fish oil markets is creating a need for the industry to demonstrate its commitment to the responsible supply of raw materials and the safe production of the ingredients for aquaculture, agriculture and in the production of products directly for the consumer,” IFFO management explains.

TASA registered record fishmeal output and exports in 2009. It produced 352,000 tonnes, 351,000 tonnes of which were sold overseas.

Some 60 per cent of the shipments were sent to Asian countries, specifically, China, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam, the firm reported last January.
