Salmon processing advancements – from precision filleting to
skin-on-skin packing

Our salmon processing technology covers the entire value chain from harvesting to consumer packaging and dispatch. Our teams of experts and innovators have developed groundbreaking salmon systems that have brought several advancements in processing technology to various stages of processing that deliver significantly improved efficiency and superior product quality. Our reliable, overarching software solution keeps the operation under control and helps processors manage the production with the right data at the right time.

Advancing salmon innovation along the value chain

In line with our continuous focus on quality innovation, our teams have developed and brought novel solutions to market that have revolutionized the salmon industry. Sub-chilling improves fillet quality in the cooling process, improves downstream yield and extends shelf life up to seven days. Our heading, gutting, filleting and trimming lines deliver accuracy and throughput that maximizes yield and helps processors direct the right material to the right processing category for maximum utilization. We have also taken salmon packing to a new level with innovative applications that not only treat the raw material extremely gently, but also minimize cross-contamination in the final stage of production. Our salmon packing system enables single fillet tracing and rating as well as smart and safe meat-on-meat and skin-on-skin packing.

Fish meat on assembly line is going through processing system

Investing 17–20 billion SEK in the circular industry park and aiming for a future production of 100,000 tons of salmon per year demonstrates our level of ambition pretty clearly. We want to do more than just promote the production of salmon. That is why we have chosen to partner with BAADER as we share a mutual vision that sustainability and innovation are key drivers for success and the development of quality salmon.

It’s especially important to be able to work as closely with the supplier as we’ve been able to do during this project. Their expertise and our experience have resulted in the creation of a promising new solution for our entire pelagic factory. The upgrade will increase the automation of our operation and enable us to increase our production capacity.
