Russian Fishery Group starts fish finger production

Russian Fishery Group starts fish finger production – The Russian Fishery Company (RFC) has started the production of fish fingers in 250-gram packing at the facilities of the Espersen Group in Russia, who is a world leader in the production of frozen fish products, with the fish fingers being available to Russian consumers later this year.

“We are going to re-introduce fish fingers to the Russian consumer,” said RFC CEO, Fyodor Kirsanov.

In the near future, the “Espersen Group” will also begin production of portioned Alaska Pollock fillet in packaging 400 grams and minced Alaska Pollock meat of the highest category in packaging 450 grams for RFC.

Products in the “ready to cook” category will be produced under the own brand of RFC “Nordeco”. All Nordeco products are made from fillets and minced meat of Alaska Pollock frozen at sea. During processing, the fish is not defrosted, which ensures high quality of the product.

In addition to the production at the facilities of the Espersen Group, the RFC produces Alaska Pollock fillets in 1 kilo packaging under the Nordeco brand directly on fishing trawlers. Since this year, the production of Alaska Pollock mincemeat in the same packaging has also been mastered.The start of retail sales of Nordeco products is scheduled for the end of this year.

Since the beginning of 2019, the products of the combined brand “Agama-Nordeco” will also appear on the shelves. Under this brand, portioned fillet and minced meat from block fillet and Alaska Pollock mince will be produced, as well as Alaska Pollock fillet in individual packaging. All products will be manufactured at the facilities of the Agama company from single-frozen RFC fish.
