A new fertiliser blending and bagging plant has been officially opened by Associated British Ports and Cofco International UK at Ipswich.

Representing an investment of £700,000, the new plant is based at the the port’s Coldock bulk bagging terminal. Cofco says it will increase the range of fertilisers offered to UK farmers, enable the development of new products and improve distribution efficiency.

Delivery of the new plant marks the completion of the latest phase of a £2m investment project which has seen ABP create new jobs and purchase two high speed bagging lines – both primarily for fertiliser handling.

It was officially opened by Countess of Euston Suffolk Clare FitzRoy, who is Lord Lieutenant for Suffolk. Other guests of honour included BBC Countryfile’s well-known presenter Adam Henson who was the keynote speaker at the event.

ABP short sea ports director Andrew Harston said: “We are delighted to be able to announce this latest investment in value-adding port facilities which will help grow the business of our customers, Cofco International UK.

“Together with ABP’s other two East Anglian ports of Lowestoft and King’s Lynn, Ipswich plays a vital role in supporting the regional economy and local jobs and we look forward to continuing to do so in future.”

Cofco International UK managing director Mark Dordery  said: “The new facilities at Ipswich are key in helping us develop our range of fertiliser products and services to our growing customer-base across East Anglia and into the whole of the UK.”
