Fillexia Launch

Marel returned to the 3rd International Fish Congress & Fish Expo Brazil from November 24th to 26th to reconnect face to face with local customers and introduce the new FilleXia tilapia filleting machine.

The FilleXia features technology that has been long-awaited by the market and was one of the highlights of the IFC, with many processors visiting the Marel booth to see the newly introduced machine. Three units have since been sold in addition to equipment such as the TargetBatcher during the exhibition.

FilleXia‘s automated filleting meets the current needs of food processors, especially in Brazil, which ranks as the fourth-largest tilapia producer in the world. It features refined components, a compact layout, and processes up to 40 fish per minute. Fish processors can expect a consistent and accurate production with low cost and maximum yield with reduced handling.
