Quality and Freshness

Expert selection and handling of fish is crucial. We only take the freshest of the catch and then seal in the freshness quickly and efficiently using the very latest in freezing techniques. This ensures the long-term preservation of vitamins, taste and texture.

Hygiene and Quality Control

Fish is a food product, and where food for human consumption is concerned nothing but the highest standards of hygiene will do. These are the standards we set for ourselves and in doing so we adhere to the most stringent requirements of the food industry. At all stages of the production process our products are monitored by our quality control department and tested in our laboratory.
