Norwegian salmon farmer Marine Harvest signed a partnership agreement Tuesday with Spanish processor Scanfisk to expand its business operations and sales volumes in the Iberian retail and foodservice markets.

The partnership will be implemented in the fourth quarter, enabling Marine Harvest to produce pre-packed and value-added fish and seafood products, both fresh and frozen, in Spain for retail.

Scanfisk will continue to serve all sales channels in Spain and Portugal with a focus on non-pre-packed fresh and frozen fish and seafood.
