For attendees concerned with the seafood industry’s requirements for increased automation, DSI Freezing & Handling, which recently acquired Erlinord A/S, will be at the expo, showcasing its custom plate vertical and horizontal freezers. 

“The manufacturers of fish and seafood demand total solutions from one supplier. Accordingly, with Erlinord’s strong competencies within automation, including palletizing, packaging and labelling, we can now offer customized solutions for automatic loading and unloading of vertical and horizontal plate freezers,” DSI Freezing and Handling Sales Director Peter Nygaard Christensen said.

”By automating loading and unloading of plate freezers, we ensure efficient processing with an increased output, as well as increased safety for the operators working on, for example, fishing trawlers,” he added.

The Denmark pavilion will also host several product launches during SEG18 and SPG18,  Danish Fish Tech Group confirmed.  Plus Pack A/S will be launching its new Ready2Cook Skin Packaging Solution, which offers maximum food safety and flexibility for the consumer with its ability to travel swiftly from the chilled section, to the oven, and then to the microwave or grill, the company said. 

“Full surface skin packaging has a hermetically sealed solution that ensures food safety. In addition, the aluminium container is fully recyclable and can be used as a cooking tray,” said Camilla Haustrup Hermansen, Plus Pack’s director for business development and marketing. “This gives the food manufacturers strong marketing advantages in meeting the consumers’ demands of hygienic and convenient packaging of solutions for fresh fish. It is much easier to transport, stack and store for the retailer and also much easier to handle for the consumer,” she added.
