OKEANRYBFLOT: We are increasing our presence in the Russian market.
Okeanrybflot has been on the market for more than half a century. First of all, the high quality of goods helps to maintain positions, said Yevgeny Novoselov, general director of the Kamchatka company.
“Everything is natural, without any additives or preservatives. Only an environmentally friendly product, produced and frozen at sea, ”said the head of Okeanrybflot.
According to him, today the resources allow the company to work quite efficiently. “Our products are in demand both in Russia and on the world market, but the main recipe for success is our highly professional crews who successfully master the allocated production volumes all year round and process the catch qualitatively,” said Evgeny Novoselov. “In order to provide fishing, we maintain the fleet in good condition.”
The company now has 13 fishing vessels and 5 transport vessels. The company implements a fleet renewal program to increase efficiency at sea. There is also its own maintenance base, which allows preparing vessels for work directly in Kamchatka.
“In 2018, we delivered over 60 thousand tons of fish products to the domestic market. Including more than 8 thousand tons of herring fillet, more than 1.8 thousand tons of peeled squid in individual packaging, more than 6 thousand tons of pollock fillet, ”the source told Fishnews - Fisheries News.
About 45% of Okeanrybflot's finished products goes to the domestic market, and if we take into account raw materials, this is a distribution of 50% to 50%.
“In general, every year we increase the production of pollock fillets for the Russian market in consumer packaging. Annual growth of 10-17%. Last year, they began to produce products in a package of 600 grams, with the production of such goods more labor costs, but such portions are more convenient for housewives, ”said Yevgeny Novoselov.
Features of ship processing, of course, do not allow expanding the range after certain limits, he said. But freezing in the sea is an indicator of quality.
“From high-quality raw materials, we produce good products, using, among other things, the capabilities of deep processing on ships,” summed up the general director of Okeanrybflot.
