BAADER – as one of the leaders in developing the highest quality solutions for fish processing and Norway Seafoods – as one of Europe’s largest providers of high quality whitefish solutions are currently working together to realize a better and more efficient processing line for cod and other whitefish species. The aim of the new processing line is better quality, a more efficient work flow and better economics for fish processors.
Fillet quality is significantly improved
The recently developed filleting machine BAADER 582 is the core product of the new solution. The quality of the fillet, especially in the high value loin area, is significantly improved as the new cutting process is not forcing stress on the fillet and the membrane in this area stays intact. This is particularly important for soft fish. The black belly skin is perfectly removed and the yield is improved compared to traditional filleting machines.
Higher yield at lower costs
The BAADER 59 skinning machine follows the BAADER 582 in the processing line. The fillet is smooth after skin removal and even soft products are skinned gently. One of the special features of the BAADER 59 is that skinned, separated fillets leave the machine stretched out, ready for inspection and further processing. No manual straightening is necessary. In combination BAADER 582 and BAADER 59 produce filets with improved quality for further processing and packing to consumer products which results in higher yield at lower cost.
Monitor and control – yield tracing
Both BAADER and Norway Seafoods are aware that food processors are always searching to improve ways to monitor and control production. BAADER is handling this challenge with the company’s weighing equipment and B’Logic® software for easy access to production information for optimizing the raw material usage, the operator efficiency and the performance of the equipment.
B’Logic® software interfaces all actors at the processing floor, the production office and the management. Real time management reporting is available to follow up the production with regards to yield, performance and throughput.
Robert Focke, Managing Director at BAADER: “We are really pleased about the opportunities which arise through the combination of the strengths of the BAADER Group and Norway Seafoods.
Both companies complement one another respectively to process technology, development experience and practical knowledge. Both companies hold long traditions and we are both skilled and passionate about our profession and we always strive to improve. By focusing on total solutions we support a Safe Food Policy in everything we do – and “we do what we say”. Above all, we look forward to step into the new era of Whitefish Processing together with Norway Seafoods and to take our products to the next level.”
Thomas Farstad, CEO Norway Seafoods: “The co-operation with BAADER Group has delivered a much needed improvement to the whitefish processing industry. Consumers will experience better products and processors improved financial results. Additionally, this is an important step to create more knowledge based jobs in the processing industry. The knowledge and experience of BAADER matches industrial needs of Norway Seafoods, and the companies have jointly identified and solved issues with respect to fileting and skinning of cod filet. We are pleased with the results, and are committed to further technological development within this sector. “
