Funding from European Maritime Fisheries Fund and Scottish Borders Council Eyemouth Regeneration Fund was secured in 2018 and enabled the Trust to undertake the project. The project included decommissioning an obsolete plant (formerly owned by the Eyemouth Ice Co-operative which ceased trading in 2016) and purchase of new, modern, fit for purpose machinery.
The new plant has a capacity of 5 tonnes per day, producing macro flake ice which will be sold in 500kg bins.
Operations of ice production facility will be supported by a specially adapted forklift truck, which was part funded EMFF Forth FLAG Community Led Local Development program. The new forklift truck has the capacity to safely transfer ice from the bins to the delivery system. The funding included training for members of staff who will operate the truck.
All enquiries and orders for ice should be directed to the Eyemouth Harbour Master’s Office
