Marel and TOMRA Food have formed a strategic partnership with the ambition of bringing new sensor-based sorting and processing technologies to optimize value, reduce waste and increase food safety in the global poultry, meat and fish industry.

As part of the long-term alliance, the partners will collaborate on sales and research and development to optimize existing offerings and develop innovative new solutions for the market. The partners will also access each other´s distribution and sales networks and develop commercial prospects throughout the supply chain.

Announcing the strategic partnership, Marel CEO, Árni Oddur Thórdarson, said: “This is an important partnership between two innovative industry leaders. We both envision a world where high-quality food is produced sustainably and affordably. Marel has an excellent track record of technological innovations in food safety, traceability, process control, efficiency and yield, combined with our overarching Innova food processing software. Marel is the leader in sensor technology for the poultry, meat and fish industry. Through this partnership we are advancing to the next phase in sensor-based solutions for our customers. With TOMRA operating across many food categories, working together can bring improved systems and technologies to the food industry.”

TOMRA president and CEO, Stefan Ranstrand, said: “TOMRA and Marel have a very similar history, mindset and culture which makes this a natural business alliance. TOMRA Food’s portfolio of sorting and grading solutions is the broadest in the industry, and most leading food brands use our technology globally. We believe innovations from the partnership will benefit the wider industry and environment, by optimizing processes, reducing cost and minimizing food loss. This is an exciting partnership to embark on with Marel.”

As a first step of the partnership, Marel will become a sales channel for TOMRA’s QVision fat, protein and collagen analyser. In 12 months’ time Marel will become the system’s exclusive business partner integrating QVision into Marel´s full line offering.

Hvis alt er fantastisk, hvorfor stuper da kursen?

Som dere kan lese i trådstart, omsatte Marel for 1.2 milliarder Euro 2018. Marel omsatte altså for rundt 40% mer enn Tomra i 2018. Denne nyheten synes å ha gått helt under radaren i finansmarkedet her hjemme, men vi snakker altså om en stor aktør som med stor suksess tilbyr teknologi for matvaretilvirkning (fisk, kjøtt og fjærkre). En aktør som slår fast at automatisering er fremtiden i bransjen, og når denne aktøren som altså selv er en stor teknologiutvikler sier dette, ja da er det nesten så man blir litt rørt og stolt på Norges vegne...:


New strategic partnerships

"Data is in the DNA of the company, but innovation is not something that happens within the walls of the company. It happens with strategic partnerships," said Olason.

According to Olason, Marel retains a balance between maximizing its long-standing research and data and introducing new blood into the company.

Marel announced a new strategic partnership with sensory technology company Tomra, mainly focused on the detection of abnormalities in food products.

New prototypes under Marel's processing software, Innova, were also demonstrated, as the relevance of traceability and transparency solutions also increases, Olason said.


Helt fantastisk dette, spør du meg. Her har dere like godt hele artikkelen så kan dere selv bedre vurdere hva Tomra faktisk har prestert her (les: Hvilken helt fantastisk teknologiutvikler Tomra er!!!)



Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto: Marel says seafood customers clamoring for automation

As markets all over the world are becoming data- and technology-mature, automation has become a top priority, Marel execs told IntraFish.

"If I had to rank our customers' priorities, robots are the first priority. The second is robots. And the third, you are welcome to guess," Marel Global Sales Director Diego Lages told IntraFish at the Whitefish Showhow 2019 in Copenhagen last week.

This is the fifth time the annual event has been held, this year with a heavy focus on the role of automation in food processing, as the giant Icelandic processing equipment manufacturer demonstrated prototypes for various kinds of fish handling robots.

Robotics and super sensory technology have been the top priority because Marel's customers are communicating a need, and a new openness, to modernizing their systems.

"Scarcity of labor is fueling the problem. Countries that did not used to need it are starting to see that there is a need for automation beyond automation's sake," Managing Director Sigurdur Olason told IntraFish. "It is a global trend, as countries that did not previously have a problem with labor are starting to have it now."

Both the lack and cost of manpower are slowing the industry down even in leading markets such as Scandinavia and Iceland, the execs said. Companies are competing with other food industries for this labor, while robotic technology could make production lines more cost-effective.

Closing the gap between markets and sectors
In 2018, revenues for the full year for Marel were up 20.3 percent to €159.1 million ($180.6 million), and earnings before interest and taxation (EBIT) rose 125 percent to €12.6 million ($14.3 million). One of the reasons behind the success, the company said, is the popularity of its Flexicut system.

The recent Whitefish Showhow attracted customers from 22 countries, but there has been increased interest from Southern Europe and Latin America, particularly for processing solutions for farmed whitefish, Marketing Manager Stella Kristinsdottir said.

Lages said the evolution of processing moves at different stages in different regions, with every country moving on "a maturity timeline."

"We are seeing that emerging countries are more ready for a technological step," he said. "In some sectors, like seabass and bream, [processing equipment] can be up to 50 years obsolete. But now technology is more accessible than ever."

Technology for seafood processing has been slow in emerging markets; compared to other food products like meat or poultry, fish has historically lagged behind due to being a less "homogeneous" product.

An intimate relationship with seafood is what gives the company its competitive edge, said Lages.

"There are robot manufacturers, many of them, but Marel understands the fish like nobody else," he said.

"It is very easy to make a robot pick up a cellphone or a piece of chocolate, but live protein is very different. We are able to develop gripping tools that make the handling of the product more delicate than anyone else."
