The nature and surroundings at the coast of Norway have created a culture for pioneering.
Our forefathers taught us to harvest what we needed and to utilizing everything that we harvested. Through generations we have been pioneers in harvesting from the ocean. Here at the pure and harsh westcoast of Norway we have lived by and harvested from nature. And that’s why we love to think, act and live sustainable lives. It`s in our DNA.
The world's population is expected to increase by 2 billion in the next 30 years. Global food demand is increasing rapidly and the answer lies in the oceans. We all need to make sure there is enough food for everyone. For this reason we have to harvest and utilize the oceans resources in a sustainable way.
Caring for our customers, the fish welfare and the environment is always our highest priority. Our Teams at MMC First Process will continue to be a world leading pioneer in sustainable fish handling.
We have all a responsibility for the generations to come, that is why we spend lots of time and effort in developing state of the art technology that improves fish safety, food quality with increased profitability and system solutions within fish handling, processing and cooling. We are proud to say;
MMC First Process -Sustainable fish handling- it`s in our nature.
MMC First Process will continue to be a world leading pioneer in sustainable fish handling, and we are proud to be a member of the United Nations Global Compact.
Joining the United Nations Global Compact represents a further step forward, as we develop the sustainability strategy that we look forward to presenting in 2021.
UN Global Compact`s mission is to generate an international movement for sustainable companies, and encourage companies and organizations to align their strategies and operations with ten universal principles on human rights, labour standards, the environment and the fight against corruption. A further aim is to promote the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
MMC First Process Mission is to work with our customers, so that together we can become the best in the world at handling, processing and cooling the sea`s most important food resources effectively, carefully and sustainably.
Customer care, fish welfare and the environment will always be our top priorities, and the ten principles in the UN Global Compact match perfectly with our own ambitions in MMC First Process.
We want to make a difference.
The UN sustainable development goals are implemented in the MMC FIRST PROCESS strategy. We have chosen seven goals that we have highlighted and where we want to make a difference with our complete sustainable system solutions.
– THE WORLD VIEW
In ‘The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture’, FAO 2018 the UN Food and Agriculture Organization tells us that aquaculture is growing fast and is forecast to produce 60 % of all fish for human consumption by 2030 – 37 % more that at present.
FAO identifies aquaculture as a leaner and much more sustainable, environmentally-friendly method of producing food for the world’s rapidly increasing population. It is an enormously efficient method of producing highly nutritious food that contains unique quantities of proteins and ingredients that are key to human health. Meat products cannot compete, because the food conversion ratio (FCR) of aquaculture products is far in excess of traditional animal farming on land.
We can look at the excellent example of farmed salmon – an extensive and important industry here in Norway – to demonstrate this.
– OUR VIEW
MMC First Process adds value for our customers and supports sustainability by focusing on biomass security.
Our products are designed with fish welfare as a high priority: the better the fish welfare and quality of processing, the better the final product.
