Agricultural supply chain solutions firm Scoular and two partners plan to open a new, $12 million fishmeal processing plant in Warrenton, OR as part of a broader company effort to increase its growth in the aquaculture and pet food space.
Planned to open in summer 2022, the facility will use trimmings from local fish processing operations as a raw material.
The Omaha-based firm revealed plans for the new facility in a September 15 release announcing the launch of its new fishmeal brand Encompass. Scoular also said it is opening a fishmeal plant in Myanmar this October, expanding its ability to serve customers in the Asia-Pacific region.
“Scoular has long been a leading global fishmeal partner that connects suppliers and customers with a full spectrum of fishmeal products and services,” Steve Dahlblom, product group manager, Marine Meals for Scoular, said in a statement. “The brand Encompass represents the customized solutions, consistent quality and reliability that our global suppliers and customers trust Scoular to deliver without disruption.”
Last month, Powder & Bulk Solids reported that Scoular named Noland Morris as its new Director of Environment, Health, and Safety, the firm’s top safety-related role. Morris started working for Scoular in 2018 as Senior Safety Manager for its Food Division. He will report to Scoular Senior Vice President Bryan Wurscher in the new position.
