Benefits to customers and consumers

Marel and MMC First Process are not only transforming the operational landscape of seafood customers but also redefining the consumer experience. This collaboration goes beyond mere enhancements in customer efficiency; it aspires to elevate the consumer's journey by providing trust, transparency, and sustainability.

The emphasis on elevated food safety measures and prioritizing hygiene ensures meticulous processing that meets industry standards. This not only reassures consumers about the quality of their seafood but also directly benefits customers by enhancing the reputation of their products.

Additionally, increased traceability enables consumers to track their seafood's journey from ocean to plate, promoting transparency and trust. This assurance that their seafood has been handled and processed to the highest standards satisfies consumer preferences and adds value to our customers’ offerings.
