Biomega, leading bioscience company that develops salmon peptides and proteins for human petfood and human nutrition applications, has appointed Chris Fredrik Simmenes as its new factory manager. Simmenes will be overseeing the company’s flagship biorefinery in Skaganeset, Norway.
Simmenes joins biomega after working at Mesterbakeren, a leading Norwegian bakery chain, for more than a decade. As a shift manager, he quickly progressed to an expedition leader in 2015 and became responsible for over 60 employees at the company.
Stig Petersen, CEO at biomega, says, “It’s with great pleasure that we welcome Chris to our team. Responsible for the day-to-day operations of our Skaganeset biorefinery, his wealth of experience in dealing with regulatory requirements from Mesterbakeren will swiftly become an asset to us.
“With a background in teaching and experience in logistics management, Chris is a superb mentor and is already becoming a vital part of our team here in Norway.”
Alongside its Norwegian facility, biomega will be adding a second biorefinery in Denmark to expand its manufacturing capabilities. More information about that can be found, HERE.
“I am truly grateful and humble to be welcomed by such a highly competent team at biomega,” says Simmenes. “The company is continuously working towards its sustainable goals as a responsible manufacturer, therefore the decisions we make must be for the future of our planet, and I look forward to taking our operations to the next level.”
