Salmon farming and whitefish heavyweight Leroy Seafoods is investing NOK 158 million (€13.7 million/$14.7 million) in its Kjollefjord, Norway, processing factory to increase efficiency and capacity and provide room for new investment opportunities in the future.

This is a significant investment for Leroy, for Kjollefjord and for eastern Finnmark, said Leroy Norway Seafoods CEO Borge Soleng. "This investment means securing year-round jobs and operations at the plant, as well as good ripple effects in the local community."

The factory specializes in king crab, but also handles high-quality whitefish for filleting and salting.
