“We are over the moon that Berg Eiendom has selected us as their contractor. This will result in significant production on our books in both 2023 and 2024, which will help to secure the jobs of our 200 employees and our local partners. Additionally, a facility of this kind will have positive ripple effects, bringing many new jobs to the region, which will form the basis of growth and make the Innherred district an appealing place to live,” says Morten Hynne, General Manager of Grande Entreprenør.

The slaughterhouse will be located at the Leinsmyra industrial area in Røra in the municipality of Inderøy, and it will have a total approximate area of 8,500m2 distributed over three storeys. The facility will include areas for the slaughter and processing of poultry, as well as a goods in area for live animals and a goods out area for finished products. There will also be a separate administration wing included in the building.

“With my own background in the meat industry, it’s particularly gratifying on the personal level that we’re adding a slaughterhouse to our CV. Food production is one of the most meaningful things we can do, and it goes without saying that a community like Innherred, part of Norway’s agricultural heartland, must have facilities that allow it to further process those products that come from its farming,” Hynne concludes.

Construction work will start in the spring with completion scheduled for the autumn of 2024.
