Labeyrie reaps dividends from converting salmon waste saving

French food processor plowed $8 million into upgrade making salmon offcuts suitable for human consumption.

French food processor Labeyrie said it is reaping the benefits after investing €7 million ($7.9 million) in an upgrade that makes salmon offcuts previously used in animal foods suitable for human consumption.

The investment at the Saint Geours de Maremne plant in southwestern France is part of the company’s participation in a program aimed at saving on waste with 18 other agro-industrial companies.

While only 2.5 kilograms of slices are produced from a 6 kilogram fish, so called "co-products" gleaned from offcuts are useful in the production of other value added product lines, Production Director Emeric Gravier told Challenges.fr in an interview.
