City of Bremerhaven
Bremerhaven is the only large city on Germany's North Sea coast. Water and the port dominate the city's picture. The economy is characterised by the maritime location of the coastal town: shipbuilding, fishery, food production and one of the largest container terminals in the world.
As a centre for today's food industry, the Fisheries Harbour epitomises the current transformation of Bremerhaven's economic structure. In the 1980s and 1990s, new and lucrative fields based on the traditional fish industry have been developed, for example in the production of frozen food and ready-made meals.
Big-name companies in the fish industry, namely Frozen Fish International (frozen fish), Frosta AG (frozen food), "Deutsche See" (fish manufacturing) and Nordsee (a chain of catering and retail outlets), are domiciled here. The Fisheries Harbour is also a diversified industrial estate with a maritime focus, ranging from small craft trade enterprises to the large newbuilding shipyard.
The Department of Economic Affairs is the interface between the administration and politics as well as companies and institutions of the economy, and thus contact point for policy makers, regulators, as well as for the state of Bremen and Lower Saxony on all aspects of the regional economy.
It is the control and coordination centre within a network of specialized public and private companies and organisations. It is primarily responsible for the strategic and conceptual planning of Bremerhaven's economic policy.
It divides into several task clusters; one of them is the logistics and transport cluster which will contribute to the foodport project.
