International biotechnology company, biomega®, has appointed Susanne Stenskrog as its quality manager for its soon to be opened biorefinery in the Port of Hirtshals, Denmark.

The announcement comes prior to the biorefinery’s official opening in late summer, which will soon begin production for its recently launched human nutrition line, biomega® SalMe peptides.

Stenskrog joins biomega® from Danish Crown Foods as an experienced quality manager, working with some of the Nordic region’s biggest brands, including Tulip, Mou, Steff Houlberg and GØL. Here she was responsible for the maintenance and implementation of quality management systems in line with BRC, IFS, RSPO, Halal, QS and ecology accreditations.

With more than 30 years of experience in quality management, Stenskrog has an extensive skillset by working almost two decades with the Danish distiller De Danske Spritfabrikker, now owned by parent company Anora Group.

Ingrid Tyssen Bruu, Director of Global Quality at biomega®, commented: “It is with great delight that we welcome Susanne to biomega®. Susanne’s appointment is one of several new positions at our newly built Hirtshals biorefinery as we accelerate ingredient production for human nutrition applications.

“Susanne’s exemplary career and experience in food and beverage quality management will set the standard at the new factory, ensuring our products not only meet national legislative requirements, but are of the highest quality to meet customer demands and expectations.”

The Hirtshals biorefinery, which has been built from the ground up by the biomega® team, features top of the range biotechnology to deliver on the company’s high standards in salmon peptide and oil production.

Delighted with her new position, Stenskrog said: The biomega® circular vision and modern production processes around sustainability are truly inspirational and a real motivation for me. Working at a brand-new factory offers plenty of fresh, exciting and challenging opportunities, particularly when starting from scratch with a quality management system that propels the business forward with momentum. I am excited to put my stamp on this process and grow professionally with the biomega® team.”
