Aller Aqua acquires Danforel

As of 1 May 2022, Aller Aqua Group A/S took over the entire share capital in the company Danforel.

Aller Aqua CEO Hans Erik Bylling says, “From Aller Aqua’s side, we look forward to the new close collaboration between the companies, which will give both companies better opportunities to optimize fish farming, processing and marketing in the future.”

“Very soon we will begin new investments in expanded fry facilities, as well as optimization in the production. In addition, we want to ensure the optimum utilization of the whole fish”, says CEO Hans Erik Bylling.

With these initiatives, Danforel will continue to be the best procurer of fish produced in Danish aquaculture farms.

Danforel’s director Erik Hansen continues as CEO.

Meanwhile, Aller Aqua has appointed Hendrik Sörensen as its new Sales Manager for D-A-CH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland), and eventually the replacement for Alexander Tautenhahn as he retires. “Mr Sörensen will continue our outstanding customer service and will to the best of his abilities utilize his in-depth knowledge and practical approach to aquaculture”, says Aller Aqua’s Sales Director for Western Europe Tom Krog Nielsen.

Mr Sörensen holds a master’s degree in Aquaculture Science and Sea-Ranching from the University of Rostock and has previously worked as farm manager at Tessiner Edelfisch and lately as farm manager and deputy CEO at Fresh Völklingen.

 “I’m delighted to be joining the Aller Aqua Group. I look forward to establishing strong ties with our customers and the aquaculture industry throughout the region,” says Mr Sörensen.
