Seafood processor Paramount 21 has invested in a 464.5m2 warehouse adjacent to its Newton Abbot production site in Devon to release production space as it steps up its new product development.

Speaking to Food Manufacture​ in this exclusive podcast, md Ali Hannaford said the company routinely invested up to £500,000 a year on average to support its development.

“We have got a large dry store in the centre of the factory, so this is going to be releasing space in the factory so we have more production capacity,”​ said Hannaford.

Make its own sauces

She also said the company aimed to install two new tipping pots in the facility on June 16, strengthening its ability to make its own sauces and stock on site for dishes such as fish pies. It would also be able to store the sauces on site, simplifying its supply chain.

The company, which predominantly supplies major foodservice customers such as Brakes, is working on incorporating whiting more in its products and launched a breaded whiting product earlier this year. Other recent innovations include a whiting fishcake, arancini rice and fish balls and a falafel hotdog.

Listen to this podcast for more details from Hannaford on further innovation plans and what she regards as some of the biggest challenges currently facing Paramount 21.
