ICECO fish - one of the fastest growing fish processing companies in the Baltic StatesEstablished in 2011, the Lithuanian-capital private company ICECO UAB acquired Kraitene, a fish products and ice-cream production enterprise based in Marijampole that had been among Lithuanian market leaders since 1995 according to fish processing volumes.
ICECO UAB took over Kraitene‘s immovable and movable assets together with a team of experienced professionals in the field of fish processing. Tested recipe formulations have been retained and new products are being created based on the market demand.
In 2015, ICECO UAB was reorganised by separating fish production from other activities of the company. The new company received the name of ICECO zuvis, UAB (translation in English: ICECO fish).
ICECO fish produces and sells under its own brands ZIGMAS and JUNGA that are well known in the markets of the Baltic States; it also provides a production service to the largest Lithuanian, Latvian and Western European supermarket chains, i. e. uses formulations preferred by them and produces items with their private labels.
Both production volumes and assortment have been constantly increasing from year to year, with the ongoing upgrading of equipment and placing of new products on the market. The majority of fish product sales of ICECO žuvis, UAB is designed for the Baltic market and Western European countries. Exports account for as much as 75% of the sales.
As development, production and supply of fish products of the highest quality is a priority for ICECO žuvis, UAB, food safety and development of the quality management system is in the focus of attention.
Only best quality raw fish supplied by carefully selected companies are used for the production. Physical, chemical and microbiological analysis of raw materials, auxiliary materials and finished products is carried out at accredited Lithuanian and German laboratories on a regular basis.
The company‘s quality management system is audited by both in-house internal auditors and external audit firms on a regular basis. Such permanent control ensures the best quality of foodstuffs supplied to the market (for more information about production and quality processes click here).
