Marel installs China’s first automated salmon processing line

A Chinese seafood firm has installed what it claims is the first fully automated salmon processing system in China. 

The new Marel system was installed by the He Cheng Food Co Ltd. at the Heng Sha International Fishing Port – a port and bonded zone opened in 2014  in the Changxing Island District outside Shanghai. 

The new line is already in operation and is capable of processing up to 30 tons of salmon daily, from slicing to packaging, according to the firm.

Iceland-based Marel has been growing its business in China as the country’s processors seek to cushion themselves against higher wage levels.
