Icelandic Seafood UK, part of the Iceland Seafoods International Group of companies, have recently invested £8m in redeveloping and equipping an existing food manufacture site in Grimsby.
The site has been redeveloped to bring together two existing UK businesses in one site to provide a platform to become a leading supplier of seafood to the UK and Europe. The move to the new site has allowed for significant growth, creating 80 new jobs.
Danny Burton, Managing Director of Icelandic Seafood UK said:
"We are all excited about the investment in the new site, the larger site and the installation of additional manufacturing lines creates the opportunity for continued growth of the business based on improved quality, service and competitiveness. The investment illustrates the commitment of our parent company Icelandic Seafood International to the Grimsby area, with a recognition of the strength of the Grimsby workforce and the deep knowledge of fish & seafood within that group."
Icelandic Seafood International employs over 670 staff globally, operating 11 businesses in 8 countries including 7 value added factories, and has over 3,000 customers in 45 countries.
