Aller Aqua Group starts construction of the new factory in Zambia

In Aller Aqua Zambia the factory is now under construction. The first board meeting has been held – and staff members have started onboarding.


Adam Taylor, Henrik T. Halken, Johnny Hansen and Carsten Jørgensen met in IFU’s headquarters in Copenhagen for the company’s first board meeting. The meeting was initiated to ensure the best possible start for Aller Aqua Zambia Limited. The current outlook is very positive. The first big client is secured and the first employees, including the managing director, have been recruited. Now the building of the factory needs to keep its pace and the company should be ready for production of high quality extruded fish feed for aquaculture by September 2017.

Whilst 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. Yalelo has plans to grow the production of Tilapia to 30.000 tonnes in Zambia within the next few years. This rapid 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.
