Mercator Media Ltd can now confirm that due to the uncertainty surrounding the extended COVID restriction on crowd gathering in Iceland, the 4th edition of Fishwaste for Profit will now be held from 9-10 June 2022.
The 4th edition of Fish Waste for Profit will now take place in 2022 alongside the IceFish Exhibition from 8-10 June 2022. We look forward to delivering a successful event and meeting you in June 2022! The reutilisation of fish processing by-products is a lucrative add-on to regular fish processing, serving the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and agricultural industries. Estimates reveal that 43% of fish and shellfish resources end up as wastage, which represents a significant amount of potential profit that could be generated from otherwise discarded material. Fish Waste for Profit provides attendees with knowledge on how to maximise their return on investment from potentially discarded parts of the catch that can be turned into high value products for non-food sectors. It is a must attend event for those looking to discover new innovations and industry insights, and to develop relations with key industry stakeholders. You could be throwing away up to 43% of potential profit that can be generated from otherwise discarded material! Learn how at Fish Waste for Profit! The previous edition of Fish Waste for Profit took place in April 2019, delivering case-study-based presentations, selected with the aim of informing attendees about recent industry developments and the ‘big business’ that fish waste is becoming. 2022 will see the return of the conference integrated with the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition, offering attendees the opportunity to network with over 13,000 commercial fishing, supply chain, value added and processing professionals during dedicated networking time on day two of the conference.
