Marine Harvest--the world ’s biggest Salmon producer saved its production costs by recycling fish boxes

 

Marine Harvest (ASA) is one of the largest seafood companies in the world. It is also the world's largest Atlantic Salmon producer. Marine Harvest has many branches in 24 countries, with more than 12,000 employees. Marine Harvest supplies more than 6 million seafood to its customers in every corner of the world every day. For such a big seafood company, EPS recycling is also part of its business.

 

 

To ensure the freshness of salmon, Marine Harvest uses EPS fish boxes to deliver fresh salmon to the rest of the world. After fresh salmon is processed, these EPS fish boxes can no longer be used again and finally they will become industrial waste which actually deserves to be recycled.

Before 2016, Marine Harvest's American branch company had been spending money on disposing these waste EPS fish boxes. And a local waste disposal company would then help it handle the boxes, which actually dumped the used fish boxes to the landfill site for landfill. However, whether for the factory production costs, or for the environment, landfill is not a reasonable and economic disposal method compared to EPS recycling.

 

 

In 2016, After knowing the “green recycling concept” of GREENMAX (belongs to INTCO), Marine Harvest decided to recycle its waste EPS fish boxes by contracting the recycling business to a third-party company so that it can save much extra costs -- paying to landfill.  

The third-party company uses GREENMAX A-C200 compactor (Marine standard) to compress these used fish boxes into blocks. And it is worth mentioning that GREENMAX not only supply the recycling solution to them, but also monthly purchased back a 40HC cabinet of EPS blocks with good price.

 

 

Such EPS recycling machines greatly helped Marine Harvest reduce the production costs, which also helped them make money with the EPS blocks. Marine Harvest enhanced its concept of sustainable green fisheries by the help of GREENMAX. 

 

 

Marine Harvest’s production environment is becoming more and more clean and tidy now, And more branches of it began to follow this reasonable way of recycling.

 

 

GREENMAX is always committed to working with more seafood companies around the world to help them recycle used EPS fish boxes, which finally can help reduce their production costs. What’s more, the used EPS fish boxes can also be treated in a more environmentally friendly way.
