FRESH FISH PROCESSING

Since November 2014 Maxifoods operates a modern 500 m2 fresh fish processing and packaging unit, which is unique in Cyprus. The unit operates under the highest safety standards, with BRC grade “A” certification, ensuring the highest quality for the products produced. The unit’s unique operating characteristics comprise the following

PROTECTIVE OPERATING ENVIRONMENT

 

  • The unit’s equipment and operations are housed in a completely sealed and secluded building area
  • While in operation the temperature inside the unit is constantly maintained below 120C through strong dedicated cooling units for each compartment.
  • At all times the atmosphere inside the unit is protected and sterilized through UV lamps
  • All employees working inside the unit undergo regular health analysis testing and wear proper working attire at all times.

 

MECHANICALLY AIDED FISH CLEANING & PROCESSING

Fresh fish cleaning and processing i.e. descaling, degutting and filleting is in most part mechanically aided ensuring minimum human contact and possibility of contamination

As well the different kinds of fish i.e. red fillet fish and white fillet fish are processed in separate compartments avoiding possibility of cross contamination.


FISH PACKAGING IN MODIFIED ATMOSPHERE

Fresh fish products destined for the retail market are packed in special online thermoformed packaging with modified atmosphere securing the highest possible safety, quality and freshness for the end consumers.

 

QUICK FREEZING

The unit boasts a quick freezing unit with -400C freezing capacity used for the quick freezing of specialized fillet products both for end user consumption such as seabream and sea bass fillet in vacuum and for catering products such as salmon fillet for sushi and salmon trimmings, ensuring the highest quality standards for such products
