Why Optimar

More profitable processing

Optimar has played a major role in designing and producing the automatic and robotic systems that have made fish processing easier, faster, safer, cleaner and more profitable.

Profitable processing

Our work has been largely behind-the-scenes but we are well-satisfied knowing that we have helped transform an entire industry from total dependence on manual labor to one that is sleek, efficient, automated and globally competitive.

Other sectors of the food processing industry have quickly discovered that the innovative approaches Optimar developed for handling fish are just as applicable for them.
