The Iceland Ocean Cluster (IOC) and Marel have decided to strengthen relations and build further on the long-standing relations between the parties. Marel is one of the first companies to join the IOC in 2011.

The parties aim to collaborate on assisting seafood companies globally that have the ambition to increase circularity in the seafood business. Better technology for processing seafood can have a significant effect on the sustainability of the oceans.

Together, Marel and IOC will find ways to strengthen startup activities that relate to blue ocean technology and not least technology that can improve the utilization of seafood sidestreams, currently used for landfills in many countries.
