Simple preparation and food on the go

There is a great deal of interest in local, healthy, plant-based food – often combined with ease of preparation or portability. BAMA Industri processes salads, potatoes, fruit and vegetables for a constantly expanding market. Making healthy, plant-based meals after a busy day should be quick and easy.

Simple preparation and food on the go

Relocation to Tranby finally completed

Moving-in got under way in January, and the plant is now home to both BAMA Blomster and BAMA Industri.

It was high time that the companies relocated, as they had long since outgrown their old premises. The new plant is equipped for growth, offers state-of-the-art facilities and is close to the productive horticultural community in Lier near Drammen. It was built to strict environmental standards and will be BREEAM-certified. With a floor area of 23,700 m2, there is plenty of space for the 450 or so employees.

BAMA Industri has been processing salads, fruit and vegetables at two plants in Lierstranda since 1996. The business’s administration was also based there. In addition, the company has a potato processing plant in Moss and four other facilities: in Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim and Tromsø. Nordic Lunch, a subsidiary of BAMA Industri, produces popular fresh meal solutions there, as well as a number of products such as wraps and sandwiches for customers in the supermarket and convenience retailing markets.

BAMA Industri’s production and administration both moved into the new building over the summer. The company has enjoyed several years of substantial growth. Fresh, healthy food and snacks are popular product categories with consumers. In addition, people are increasingly focusing on health, sustainability and locally grown food.

Production capacity at Tranby will more than double, and there is also enough space for further innovation and development. Around half of the products processed at Lierstranda up until now come from Norway. The Norwegian season runs from May to October, when more than 90 per cent of the produce processed is grown locally. This means less transport and fresher products.

Supplying fresh, high-quality flowers

Up until the end of 2021, BAMA’s flower business was based in Asker, Mjøndalen and Stokke. Now the three divisions are co-located in the new building at Tranby. This means increased productivity, improved HSE and a better flow of goods, as well as a state-of-the-art workplace for the employees. Having the three divisions under the same roof also eliminates unnecessary transport between them, helping to make the supply chain even more efficient and cut carbon emissions.

The flower business supplies high-quality flowers to supermarkets, florists and convenience retailers across Norway. BAMA’s flower business deals directly with skilled producers in Norway and abroad, and has local in-house production of bouquets and flower arrangements at the new building in Tranby. This is an expanding category and we offer a wide range of products that meet consumers’ needs whatever the occasion throughout the year.
