From the Sea to Tables all over Europe
Skillinge Fisk-Impex receives the landings of more than 60 contracted fishing boats every day. This means that we have secured ourselves a supply of fish and also ensured a high level of quality. The fishing boats out at sea keep their catches in zero degree water. The fish is handled in an uninterrupted cold chain. Naturally, our facilities are HACCP certified.
As we mainly fish in the southern Baltic, most of our landings contain herring, sprat, and cod. Therefore we have made these fishes our speciality when it comes to processing primary produce. Our factories are located just a few metres from where the fishing boats in Simrishamn land, so the fish is graded and filleted a few minutes after the catch has been unloaded. Fish that is not delivered to wholesalers on the same day is frozen at our own freezing plant, Simrishamns Fryshus. From this extremely modern freezing plant, freshly frozen fish is exported to countries all over Europe and also to Russia, as we have obtained a Russian export licence.
Skillinge Fisk-Impex AB consists of Simrishamns Fryshus (our freezing plant and cold storage warehouse), Nya Rökeriet (a combined shop, traditional smokehouse and restaurant) and Skillinge Rökeri (also a combined shop, traditional smokehouse and restaurant). The company is family-owned, and the CEO, Tom Ekström, has more than 30 years’ experience as a company owner within the fishing industry.
