Cornish seafood processor Falfish invests in SI
Falfish, the independent Cornish fish and shellfish processor, continuously strives for improvements across every aspect of its operation. It is committed to investing in technology, sustainability, innovation and staff training. As part of its technological investment, the company selected SI’s food processing software to be implemented at its state-of-the-art facilities at Redruth.
“Falfish supplies over 50 different species of fish and shellfish to customers across Europe, and produces more than 11,000 tonnes per annum. In order to keep produce fresh and maximise shelf life, it has to be processed within a very short time frame. SI’s Integreater food software enables us to meet these challenges, ensuring that we fulfil customer requirements to the highest possible standard.” explained Mark Greet, Falfish’s Managing Director.
At its 4,500sqm Redruth site, regular investment has kept Falfish at the forefront of the fish processing industry. This has ensured the company can offer its customers a diverse range of products.

- Hand cut fillets & VMK butterfly fillets and H&G
- Handshuck scallops
- Skin pack – pre-pack trays with or without MAP
- Added value – portions, marinated and coated/topped products
- Check weigh – fresh and frozen retail packs
- Spiral Freeze – Individual Quick Frozen (bulk boxes & retail packs)

The company is committed to quality and sustainability; it demonstrates this commitment through technical excellence and investment in fisheries research and accreditation.
