Improved results for Nutaaq® cod production


Fine-tuned methods have proven great results for this year's season of Nutaaq® cod. In spite of a late start to the season, the factory in Maniitsoq has been able to produce both faster and better while further upping the quality in general for this year's Nutaaq®.

In spite of beginning the production a month later than usual, this season looks promising for Nutaaq® Cod. During the first two months of production, the factory received more than 4600 tonnes of live fish from local fishermen, which corresponds to the same amount recieved for a period of 5 months in the previous season.  

August offered a low peak for the amount of landed live cod at the factory, and although indications showed more cod was coming, it has not improved massively during September and October.

'In spite of this low peak in the amount of cod, we still expect to finish the season with a result equal to or slightly better than the 2016 season' says Niels Wann, Category Manager.

New equipment and more experience
Recent upgrades in the production equipment, such as a new gyro freezer, have enabled the factory to increase the intake of cod per day by 400% and thus produce and freeze faster.
