RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
Innovate in the seafood industry.
Fish, cephalopods, molluscs, crustaceans … Supply chains are long and at times opaque, include numerous intermediaries between the fishers and the final processor. A product can undergo several transformations, and this in different countries. Adapting to the constantly changing markets in terms of availability, price and quality is the challenge for R&D services.

What specs can I request?
Weight, glazing, product description, bones, fishing techniques, quality certifications.
