40 Year Marel Anniversary Logotype

40 years and counting

It all began at the University of Iceland with a visionary idea for a digital marine scale that would revolutionize the fishing industry. Since then, we have continued to count significant milestones on our journey of transforming food processing, and now we celebrate our 40th anniversary. 

By joining forces with leading experts along the way, we have grown across countries, industries, and products. With cutting-edge solutions on which our partners can count, we have established ourselves as a global industry leader in fish, poultry and meat, with expanding focus on diversified products such as plant-based protein, pet food, baked goods, aqua feed and more. Our groundbreaking technologies in hardware and software are designed with a laser focus on sustainability to raise yield with less waste. 

We are a dynamic team of over 8,000 people reaching across continents and cultures. Immensely proud of how far we have come, we look forward to the next 40 years of Unity, Excellence, and Innovation in food processing.
