The company's CEO Fedor Kirsanov and Agama Group CEO Yuri Alasheev signed a long-term agreement on joint production Friday.

Under the combined brand "Agama-Nordeco" -- Nordeco being RFC’s retail brand -- 100-gram portions of fillet and mince will be produced from RFC’s frozen-at-sea (FAS) pollock.

Individually packed pollock fillets will also be produced.

According to the agreement, RFC will supply FAS pollock fillet and mince blocks as well as shatterpack to Agama's production facilities.

Agama will produce the ready-to-cook products without full defrosting during processing.

According to the contract, RFC will start supplying FAS pollock to the Agama Group as of December 2018.

Products under the "Agama-Nordeco" brand will appear in the stores in the first quarter of 2019.

"Agama has always done and is doing everything to guarantee the Russian consumers the maximum quality of fish and seafood, which is impossible without close integration with producers of raw materials," said Yuri Alasheev.

"We believe, that long-term cooperation with such a stable and strategically-minded partner as the RFC will reliably provide Russian people with perfect Alaska pollock products."
