"We are going to re-introduce such a product as fish fingers to the Russian consumer," said Fyodor Kirsanov, CEO of the company.

In the near future, the Espersen Group will also begin production of portioned Alaska pollock fillets in 400-gram packages, and minced Alaska pollock meat in packages of 450 grams.

Products in the ready-to-cook category will be produced under the company's own brand of "Nordeco" in the amount of 5,000 to 6,000 metric tons per year.

All Nordeco products are made from fillets and minced meat of Alaska Pollock frozen at sea (FAS).

During processing, the fish is not defrosted.

In addition to the production at the facilities of the Espersen Group, the RFC produces Alaska Pollock fillets in one kilo packaging under the Nordeco brand directly on fishing trawlers.

Since this year, the production of Alaska Pollock mincemeat in the same packaging has also been mastered.

The start of retail sales of Nordeco products is scheduled for the end of this year.
