• The first Slakteri business started in the mid-80s. Then you could slaughter up to 3000 kg in one day. It was fairly simple facilities compared to today's facilities

• At the end, the old Slakteriet had a capacity of about 30 tonnes per. day

• Due to strict requirements for food safety,  working environment and quality requirements from the market, the company chose in 2008 to build completely new production facilities

• The first phase has now been completed with a plant built to be able to harvest up to 100 tonnes of salmon per day
