Next week, our Head of Sales and Marketing Mike and our Managing Director Nathan will be attending Seafood Expo Global in Brussels. Here we will be showcasing our award-winning in-water electric stunner and the Electric Fish. Seafood Expo Global is regarded as the largest seafood trade event where industry professionals, buyers and suppliers from over 140 countries meet.
Our Humane Stunner Universal (HSU) has recently won our second Queen’s Award for Enterprise Innovation. Because of its revolutionary in-water stunning, the HSU has been recognized for the positive impact it has on animal welfare across the global seafood industry. This in-water stunning technology renders the fish unconscious without removing them from the water which reduces the fish stress, improves fish quality and can double the volume of fish processed per hour.
Alongside the HSU, we will also be bringing our Electric Fish to Brussels, which has been shortlisted for the Animal Welfare Award. The Electric Fish is a non-acoustic deterrent that is designed to look like a dead salmon and serves as a predator solution for areas that have regulations in place against acoustic deterrents. This deterrent was introduced to the North-American market at Seafood Expo North America earlier this year, where it received a great deal of interest.
Mike added: “As well as being an opportunity to connect with potential customers, the Brussels Seafood Expo is always a great opportunity to keep our ears open for new insights that could lead to future products concepts. We introduced our humane electric stunner in Brussels last year and based on the conversations at that show we’ve since expanded the use to other areas like by-catch stunning and to increase egg yield production in hatcheries.”
Nathan and Mike will be in Brussels from 7-9 May at stand 4-6105. Find out more about Seafood Expo Global, the exhibitors and exhibition hours on their website.
