One challenge faced by the industry is to ensure that these delicate products develop and maintain the highest quality and taste from throughout the supply chain.
Consumption of fish from a farmed source is growing rapidly and the level of oxygen and feed, as well as water supply, water quality and temperature are key parameters to aid success in the globally competitive aquaculture market.
Food processors must ensure the final product, whether it is frozen, chilled or packed in a modified atmosphere, maintains its original quality. In addition, food processors face the challenges of high water activity, pH, fat content and the presence of enzymes, which can rapidly affect the taste and smell.
From freezing and chilling to Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) and aquaculture, BOC have a detailed and practical understanding of the issues facing the fish and seafood sector and have developed a wide range of solutions to help improve farming or food processing operations.
