With an estimated completion date of June 2021, construction at the Rainforest Seafoods SVG Ltd facility in Calliaqua is progressing in a timely fashion.
Construction was paused in March 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and resumed in October 2020.
This phase of construction will include the erection of a steel framework and installation of insulation, processing and refrigeration panels.
On completion, the facility will be fully-equipped for processing seafood – with a 40 x 80 ft freezing area and live 10-ton storage tanks. There will also be office spaces and storage for packaging.
Rainforest Seafoods SVG Ltd is expected to employ approximately 80 persons, and the facility’s design will comply with European Union regulation standards – the highest within the global seafood industry.
