In 2009 IRIDA took over the fish feed factory of PROVIMI Hellas in Western Greece, Agrinio. It is equipped with a twin screw extruder from Clextral with a capacity of 25.000tones per year. High quality fish feeds manufactured with a diameter range from 1.0-12.0mm. Lipid absorption of the produced feeds is assured from a modern vacuum coater of Dinnissen.
In 2014, an investment of €4 million for the construction of a new, independent fish feed production line was completed. The new production line was constructed at IRIDA’s factory in Agrinio. The production capacity of the new line exceeds 5 tonnes per hour and, in conjunction with the existing line, the total production capacity exceeds 10 tonnes per hour. Engineering from design to assembly was accomplished in collaboration with leading manufacturing firms using state of the art technology. The outcome is a modern, environmentally friendly and very efficient fish feed factory. IRIDA S.A. may be one of the few fish feed companies in South Europe in which the factory has two independent production lines with double screw extruders. IRIDA takes advantage of this flexibility for productivity purposes and increases even more the products quality in order to satisfy the customers’ needs.
