Poland: restructuring of Marine Harvest will not negatively affect Morpol
Tuesday, 23 July 2013 13:12

Marine Harvest has announced restructuring plans for the holding company. A reduction of plants and employees in France, Belgium, and Poland are foreseen. The number of salmon processing plants will decrease from 13 to 8 and about 450 people will lose their jobs out of the 2400 currently employed. According to Piotr Kapinos, CFO Morpol, this reduction will not affect Morpol plants in Dunin (northern Poland) which will be a part of G.K. Marine Harvest. Morpol is the biggest processor of Atlantic salmon in the world and the global leader of cold smoked salmon. Other than Morpol, Marne Harvest has Marine Harvest Poland Ltd, which deals with packaging of fresh salmon. It is expected that Marine Harvest's salmon processing in Poland will be concentrated in the Morpol processing plants.
