LinkedIn +

Agricultural specialist Cefetra has signed a long-term contract with Forth Ports to use the Port of Rosyth, which will entail the port being developed to provide Cefetra with a purpose-built facility for handling an extensive range of agricultural products.

Existing storage facilities at the Port of Rosyth will be enhanced to store around 100,000 tonnes of agricultural products and the port will deepened to handle vessels carrying up to 50,000 tonnes of cargo to transform the port into the main Agri-hub in Scotland.

“We expect to increase the efficiency of our supply chains, taking advantage of scale and location,” said Cefetra managing director Andrew Mackay. “Our expectation is to develop an annual throughput in excess of 500,000 tonnes of agricultural products, worth more than £100 million.”
