Our strategy of being a leader in sustainable nutrition from the sea and our commitment to have a positive impact on people’s lives have led us to continuously search for new alliances, projects and collaboration.
THE PROJECTS THAT HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED ARE:
A Pilot Food Plant - CeTA Coquimbo
A pilot plant for new products is currently being implemented at our facilities in the Fourth Region in an alliance with the Technological Center for Food Innovation (CeTA) in the aim of providing R+D+i in the food production industry. At this pilot plant, entrepreneurs in the area can develop their products, conduct tests and pilot production, and test the market before scaling without having to make any investment.
In January 2019, we merged our mussel farming operation with St. Andrews to become the largest producer of mussels in the world. At this time we hold a 20% interest in St. Andrews.
St. Andrews’s farms measure more than 900 hectares and it processes more than 60,000 metric tons of mussels a year.
The goal of this merger is to specialize in production processes and concentrate Orizon’s operations on the production of by-products of jack-mackerel, sardines and anchovies, leaving the production of small mussels to St. Andrews.
We hold a 46.70% from Golden Omega, a Chilean company focused on producing high-quality Omega-3 concentrates with as much as 85% EPA + DHA, made from fish oil.
Golden Omega’s state-of-the-art production facilities are located in the north of Chile, close to the source of the raw material. This guarantees a secure supply of high-quality fish oil.
Predicting a sustainable future is only possible if we fulfill our commitments to people and to the communities of which we form a part. Transparency during that fulfillment is vital.
