Baritech has expanded into seafood processing.

Newcomers plan to make a splash at seafood processing show


A new energy-efficient fish pump and new processing equipment are to be launched by Danish companies at the Seafood Processing Global (SPG) trade show in Barcelona next month, the Danish Export Association said today.

Beritech and LSM Pumps are among 36 companies within the Pavilion of Denmark at SPG, which runs in conjunction with Seafood Expo Global (SEG) in the Fira de Barcelona Gran Via from April 23-25. SEG/SPG attracts around 30,000 visitors.

“SPG is a flagship exhibition for us and we’re happy to once again bring a large group of Danish suppliers to Barcelona to meet important stakeholders and business partners and to promote their products and the Danish strengths,” said Martin Winkel Lilleoere, head of fish tech at Danish Export Association and organiser of the Pavilion.

It will be the first time at SPG for both Beritech and LSM Pumps.

Beritech was primarily focused on production equipment for the food and pharmaceutical industries but has now expanded into the seafood processing market, recruiting several industry veterans with years of experience in the food and seafood processing sectors.

“We are very excited to finally introduce our new products in Barcelona,” said the company’s innovation partner and sales manager Lars Jøker. “At the same time, we are thrilled to bring along some of our new colleagues, as it is because of their expertise in the field that we have been able to expand and innovate so quickly in this area.”

LSM Pumps' new preistaltic hose pump is said to be highly energy efficient.

LSM Pumps will bring a new peristaltic hose pump for the fishing and aquaculture industry to SPG. The pump, which is a bit smaller than some of the other models from LSM, is not on the market yet but has been tested at aquaculture facilities in Denmark.

Director Leo Sørensen said: “Our pumps are highly energy efficient due to the technology, that we use that really stands out from the competitors. It saves up to 80% of the energy and reduces emissions.”

LSM Pumps employs 15 people but is looking to double the number of staff and is expanding into a new factory.
