Rosyth agri-hub reaches million tonne milestone

[ May 4, 2022   //   ]

Scotland’s largest agri-hub at the Forth Ports Rosyth has handled 1million tonnes for raw material supplier Cefetra.

The Agri-Hub, which opened in early 2020, moves products industries including those in the animal feed, food and drink and farming sectors. The port has been fully open and operational throughout the global pandemic.

Cefetra managing director Andrew Mackay, said: “The facility helps us supply the Scottish market with key raw materials that the feed, food and drink industries require to be imported.

“In addition, we have worked for Scottish farmers to develop new, interesting export markets for grains and oilseeds that we have loaded out from Rosyth. Reaching the landmark figure of 1 million tonnes of throughput in such a short period of time from the opening is a testament to all involved.”

The port invested in a new Liebherr mobile harbour crane for bulk handling capability and to manage dust emissions, a SAMSON ecological hopper, the first of its kind in the UK.
