Largest Objective One fisheries grant yet awarded to Falmouth Fishselling Company

Falmouth Fishselling Company Ltd Managing Director Mark Greet is delighted to announce an Objective One investment of almost £350,000 to purchase and modernise a new fish processing unit in Redruth. This new unit will allow the Company to process more locally caught fish.

This will not only provide a bigger site for processing but also create new jobs and better working conditions for the existing workforce.

The new factory will provide the company with premises to install state of the art hygiene standards and systems which ensure fish quality is maximised and Cornish fish is sold in top condition.

Falmouth Fishselling Company Ltd was established in 1979 and has also established Fresh from the West under the Falfish umbrella in January 2002 to provide retailers with fresh local supplies of fish. This company has also received an Fisheries grant for over £16,000 to purchase weighing and labelling equipment, which enhances the Company's traceability systems.

Mark Greet, MD of Falmouth Fishselling Company Ltd commented: "This move to Cardrew Industrial Estate will provide a first class fish processing facility enabling Falfish to produce an extended range of fish and shellfish lines."

Alison Elvey, Objective One Fisheries Programme Manager added: "It is great to see a Cornish Company taking this leap to new premises with the help of Objective One funds. The project will meet the strategic objectives by ensuring Cornish fish remains top quality and new markets are found."
