‘We are pleased that our first partner is a Far Eastern company,’ said Russian Pollock LLC’s general director Mikhail Degtyarenko.
‘It is important for us that high-quality production from catches in the Far East, will be available to people in out region.’
‘Our main goal is to provide buyers with fresh fish and fish products at affordable prices,’ said Sergey Drobyshev, head of the Samberi chain’s regional procurement department.
‘The agreement guarantees the continued availability of products from the local fishing company in the Samburi hypermarkets. Having direct deliveries from the plant, where high-tech equipment is installed, allows us to expect a product of really excellent quality.’
The Russian Pollock plant is the largest fish processing enterprise in the Primorsky Territory and has been built under the government investment quotas initiative. The enterprise’s capacity is for up to 155 tonnes of finished products per day, mainly frozen pollock fillets and IQF, as well as mince briquettes, steaks and other products. At least 20 tonnes of fish oil and fishmeal per day will be produced from main production offcuts.
‘The main raw material for the plant is pollock harvested by the Russian Fishery Company’s own vessels,’ said RFC’s general director Viktor Litvinenko.
‘In this way the company ensures quality control from catching to packaging of finished products and guarantees the unique healthy properties of wild white fish for the consumer.’
