HOW WE WORK

In Asturpesca we guarantee the excellent QUALITY of our products and the productive process through all its stages:

  • Raw material selection: We make a careful selection of fresh fish as raw material.
  • Fish handling techniques: We have an expert human team handling fresh fish using the most advanced production techniques. After this process the fish products are ready for distribution.
  • Distribution: We use certified refrigerated trucks for fresh fish and frozen fish transport.
  • Quality Control: At each stage of the production process we carry out continuous quality controls to ensure that the intrinsic characteristics of the fish are not altered as a result of the technology used and the working conditions.

It is the quality of our work that has led us to gain and maintain the trust of our clients and customers over the years.
