QUALITY AND INNOVATION
Top quality is a constant aim for us.
Our purpose is offering safe products for consumers and we are focused on customer satisfaction. For this reason we have food harmlesness policies, objectives and work procedures based on the following principles:
DANGER ANALYSIS AND IMPLEMENTATION OF CONTROL MEASURES
All our processes are permanently studied and controlled trying to minimize possible fish alterations through our technology and working conditions.
Our efforts in this direction have been recognized with the achievement of the certificate under the standard of quality and food safety IFS Food v.6 that, since its first obtention in 2013, has been renewed year after year.
FRESH RAW MATERIAL SELECTION
We are an important fish fillets distribution company due to our location near the Fish Market of Avilés, our capacity to acquire big amounts of raw material and our careful selection of fresh fish products.
More than 80% of the fish we sell comes from Asturian fish markets, with the fish markets of Avilés and Gijón being our two main suppliers.
CAPACITY TO UNDERSTAND AND RESPOND TO CUSTOMER NEEDS
We have direct communication with our clients and we adapt our work processes to their requirements. Besides, we can expand our purchasing field to other Cantabrian Ports.
It is precisely our commitment to customers that pushes us year after year to initiate new product development projects.
CONTINUOUS QUALITY IMPROVEMENT
We are committed to ensuring that the processes we carry out are analysed on an ongoing basis, so that at all times they are in line with both the company’s policy and objectives and the customer’s requirements and applicable regulations.
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR)
We are committed to improving, as far as possible, our socio-economic environment and to rejecting conduct that violates the dignity of persons.
We firmly believe in equal opportunities and non-discrimination on the basis of age, gender or country of origin. Therefore, we actively collaborate with public and private institutions in programmes to access employment and we have a great staff in which diversity is one of its values, together with professionalism. Women, in addition to accounting for more than 60% of the workforce, hold the majority of the company’s senior positions and the Management Committee is also mainly female.
RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
We are deeply aware of the importance of protecting nature and the natural environment for future generations.
Since 2016, the company has been certified under the Chain of Custody standard of the MSC (MARINE STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL) organization for sustainable fishing. This certification covers the distribution of the following products and their derivatives: octopus caught with nets by boats belonging to the fishermen’s associations of Tapia de Casariego, Viavélez, Puerto de Vega and Ortiguera and white tuna and anchovies acquired in Lonjagijón-Musel, S.A. and Fish Market of Avilés.
