In the sea
In the beginning there is the fish, for example Alaska Pollack which comes from the North Pacific
The net is lowered into the sea as soon as the echo-sounder of the factory trawler has indicated shoals of fish. The catch is heaved on board over the stern ramp, sorted according to size and species and processed immediately.
In the processing deck on the vessels there are machines which skin and bone the fish immediately. After that the fillets are deepfrozen in blocks weighing about 7.5kg.
The deepfrozen fish fillet blocks are transported by sea directly to Frozen Fish International.
Automatic saws cut the blocks into 378 pieces thus giving them their final form.
The fish pieces are conveyed in parallel rows, first through batter and then breadcrumbs.
The fingers are prefried in hot vegetable oil for 20 seconds. The core remains frozen throughout this process.
Next they go through a freezing tunnel. When they come out they are completely deepfrozen.
The fishfingers are packed automatically in folding boxes or cartons before being transported to the coldstore on pallets.
The fishfingers are now transported by reefer trucks or containers to our customers and the supermarkets.
Eat and enjoy
Each fishfinger weighs exactly 30g. On average, each German eats 11 of these per year. For more than 40 years now our fishfingers have been Germany’s most popular deepfrozen fish product...
