Salmon Evolution chooses Maritech for new land project

Salmon Evolution, the Norwegian land based salmon farming company, has chosen Maritech Digital Seafood cloud software to handle all processes related to seafood sales and trading.

An announcement said: “We are pleased to share the news that Salmon Evolution now will be implementing Maritech Purchase & Sales, Maritech´s leading cloud solution tailored for seafood trading.”

Salmon Evolution’s first facility is currently under construction at Indre Harøy on Norway’s west coast where phase one, due to supply 9,000 tonnes annually, is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.

“Maritech was a natural choice for us,” says Odd Frode Roaldsnes, chief commercial officer at Salmon Evolution.

He continued: “We are co-operating closely with Vikenco, who will handle all packing and processing of our land-based salmon, and we target seamless integrations between our systems and their production, packing, and processing solutions.

“We believe in digitalization, and sharing the Maritech platform with Vikenco, will enable an efficient dataflow that will give us valuable insights about our high-quality land-based salmon, and how we continuously can improve product quality, and our Sales departments efficiency when we connect new trading- and documentation tools.”

“Furthermore, we believe that modern, secure, and user-friendly cloud solutions are essential to running our sales processes as smoothly as possible. As Maritech´s DigitalSeafood™ platform is built specifically for the seafood value chain, and hosted in Microsoft Azure, we get the process support we need, combined with Microsoft scalable, state-of-the-art infrastructure and functionality. We know Maritech well, as a solid and competent partner and advisor.”

Klas Vangen, VP Sales at Maritech, said: “Salmon Evolution is a highly innovative company with a forward-leaning team, and we are very happy to have been chosen as one of their partners.

“They are extremely professional and easy to cooperate with, always focusing on finding optimal solutions. We share the same ambitions of being world-leading and unique within our segments while creating considerable value for our customers and owners. We are looking forward to our further cooperation and are proud that we get to take part in the Salmon Evolution journey.”

Maritech Systems AS is seen as a leading provider of software and analytics tools to the seafood industry and a recognised partner for several of the world’s largest companies.
