Far East seafood producer KVEN, one of the first buyers of surimi from Russian Fishery Company factory vessel Vladimir Limanov, has successfully produced trial batches of products from RFC’s surimi.
Previously, the company had sourced surimi from Japan, USA, Chile, Argentina or Vietnam.
According to KVEN’s specialists, RFC’s surimi is of high quality and is not inferior to Japanese in its chemical and biological composition. The company produced crabsticks, imitation crabmeat and a number of other products from high-quality Russian surimi.
‘We are pleased with the result,’ said Evgeny Morgunkov, general director of KVEN JSC.
‘We hope that most of the surimi can finally be purchased from domestic producers.’
For RFC, co-operation with Russian partners, in particular, with KVEN, is an element of a sustainable development strategy aimed at supporting local producers.
‘The beginning of co-operation with the Far Eastern brand, recognised and loved by millions of residents of the Far East, can be called in all confidence a promising start,’ commented Saveliy Karpukhin, RFC’s first deputy director general.
‘Co-operation with leading Russian and local producers allows RFC to control and ensure high quality of the product at all stages, from catch to shelf, and create the maximum added value of fish products in the country.’
