We discussed the operation around which the new equipment is designed and the reasons for investing in new technology at this point in time.
Technological advancement is key at FISK Seafood
Good managers must have a clear vision for future opportunities and Ásmundur didn‘t hesitate when asked what he would like to see more of in the industry, moving forward. „More technology! So much has been revealed to us in the recent months and years as to why we need to be on our toes regarding food production technology, both to improve production quality and as importantly, the working environment of employees.“
FISK Seafood is one of Iceland‘s largest fisheries with operations spanning the whole value chain, from fishing and aquaculture to processing, sales and export. Their story, like Marel‘s story, is one of innovation in food processing with the sustainable harvesting of limited resources as the goal - around which our two companies have built a fruitful partnership.
FISK Seafood‘s spacious, first-class facility in Sauðárkrókur employs 70 people and is obviously a place of great ambition. Fresh catch, cod and pollock, is cut into whole fillets, lightly salted and frozen before being exported to mainland Europe where it is a sought-after delicacy in the best hotels and restaurants.
