Marel's vision is to be an international leader in developing and marketing high-tech processing equipment for the food processing industry in order to increase the productivity of Marel's customers.
Marel has a history that goes back to 1977 when two engineers at the University of Iceland began to examine the possibility of developing and manufacturing scales for the effective control of production in fish processing plants.
The company as we know it was founded in Reykjavik, Iceland in 1983, and has since risen to become one of the world's leading developers and manufacturers of high-tech processing equipment for the food processing industry. The company has always maintained its vision of leadership in the design and manufacture of weighing and grading equipment, computer vision systems, intelligent portioning machines and total-solution processing systems.
Marel is also used as a brand name for our equipment and systems for the fish and meat processing industries.
