Danvers Food Plant Sold for $4.25 Million

The facility was the former High Liner Foods.

A frozen food facility on Electronics Avenue in Danvers sold for $4.25 million, reported Banker & Tradesman.

The former High Liner Foods facility was purchased by an entity calling itself 18 Electronics Ave., LLC. Banker & Tradesman reported that the manager listed in the sale is Thomas Demakes, CEO of Old Neighborhood Foods, which is a Lynn-based meat vendor. Old Neighborhood Foods sells shaved meat, sausage, hot hogs, deli meat and corned beef, according to its website.

High Liner announced in 2012 that it was closing the Danvers plant. High Liner coats and batters fish for the food-service industry, but it announced the closure of the Danvers plant, as well as one in Canada, because the two locations were considered “the highest-cost and most underutilized facilities,” according to a 2012 High Liner Foods statement.

Hope it doesn't smell as bad as when it was Fisheries Products International! High Liner Foods wasn't as bad. Danversites should pay attention and attend every meeting involved with Old Neighborhood, so we do not end up with the problems that occured with this facility in the past. IE: The Stench you could smell all the way across 95 and as far as Anna's Farm in the other direction. Thank you!
