Fresh fish specialist Fishcut is building its new plant in Lille Region—close to the efficient transport infrastructures vital to its business.

Fishcut - Lerøy - fish-processing - Lille Region

Fishcut—a fish-processing subsidiary of Norway’s Lerøy Seafood group, the world’s second-largest salmon producer—is building and equipping a new 5,000 sq m plant in Arras. The company will move into the new €7 million facility in June after operating in a rental property since 2004.

According to Henri Lapeyrere, President of Lerøy France, current strong growth in salmon consumption is set to continue through the next decade. Fishcut has opted to stay in Arras, close to the region’s A1 highway. “Because we work with fresh products, saving a few hours on distribution is important,” says Lapeyrere. In addition to investing in real estate and spending some €1 million on machinery to supplement its existing production line, the company will create new jobs over the next two years, raising its workforce from some 40 employees to around 65. Fishcut processes over 4,000 metric tons of fish annually; in 2012 the company produced 10 million trays of fish.
