Ideal Foods has signed a new supply agreement with Mowi Consumer Products UK.
Cornwall, Liskeard, UK, Ideal Foods exports fish, shellfish and fish by-products to more than 40 countries worldwide. In the last financial year, the company sold 11,520 tonnes of fish, 87% of which was sold overseas.
In a press release, it wrote that that it has a new supply for salmon heads, bellies and collars from Mowi subsidiary Rosyth, Scotland-based, Mowi Consumer Products UK. Ideal Foods is now able to increase its stock availability by up to an additional 5,000 tonnes per year.
It added that the increased stock availability will add pressure to its cold store in Grimsby.
MD Tony Horner said: “Over the last decade, we have been fortunate enough to see consistent year on year growth and in the last financial year, we achieved another company annual turnover record of GBP 13.2 million.
“To enable us to continue on this growth trajectory, we had to increase our supply of products. This new partnership with Mowi has allowed us to do this.”
Gary Paterson, Head of Operations of Mowi CP UK, said he was pleased about the new agreement: “With Ideal Foods’ wealth of experience and knowledge in this sector it was important for our operation that we had a partner who could maximise the opportunity with the range of products we provide from our facility in Rosyth.”
