”We are relying on partners who work to improve fish quality at every stage in the fish handling process,” says Diego Lages, Global Sales Director at Marel. With MMC First Process we have a first class partner who share our principles and sincere drive to improve fish handling.
The next part of the value chain, that after MMC First Process has delivered the fish alive to the processing plant, is the fileting and packing of fish to market. Keeping the fish as healthy and calm as possible is vital to maintaining quality throughout the processing of fish. The streamlining of the entire process is crucial and has repercussions throughout the value chain. By working closely with Marel systems and software we can view a much larger part of the value chain as a whole and improve in areas not previously considered. By working closely together, we improve quality and soundness in the entire value chain.
”To improve fish welfare we must consider the part of the value chain that comes after our services,” says Petter Leon Fauske. ”Marel is a trusted partner who takes the whole value chain into consideration to en-sure optimal usage of the bio-mass we work hard to maintain.
”MMC First Process’s and Marel’s shared vision of fish welfare also has a larger dimension. Food waste is a multi-faceted challenge with implications for every part of the value chain; from waste in the traps and during catch, to waste at the dinner table.
”Much of farmed and wild-catch fish is lost for a variety of reasons,” says Rakel Eva Sævarsdóttir, Sustainability Specialist at Marel. Together with MMC First Process we can discuss industrywide challenges and work to-gether to find solutions to minimize waste and optimise sustainability during catch, transfer and processing of fish.
We are confident that MMC First Process`s know-how and our technology will create added value for our customersand enable us to develop sustainable solutions and systems.” Says Diego Lages
