​At the fish industry trade fair Expo Pesca & AcuiPeru, Jimco South America will present the FLO-K system that can reduce odour at fish processing plants without using chemicals

On November 5-7, almost 10,000 participating guests and 350 exhibitors will attend the Expo Pesca & AcuiPeru trade fair, which takes place in Peru’s capital, Lima. Jimco, whose main office is in Denmark, is one of the companies attending this year’s event. Here, they will present two products. One is a direct disinfection system, which is designed for conveyor belts. The other is the air purification system FLO-K which not only clears the air of bacteria, but also controls odour at fish processing plants, which has become an increasing problem in South America. Marcello Luppichini, CEO of Jimco South America, is particularly looking forward to present the FLO-K system.

– For me, this is one of the best things currently happening in South America. The odour at these fish processing plants is a huge problem for many facilities across the continent. We want to show potential customers how our use of UV-C and ozone technology can reduce the odour at fish processing plants significantly. This is one of the main reasons why we are attending Expo Pesca & AcuiPeru, says Marcello Luppichini. Jimco’s products stand out due to the fact that they do not use any chemicals. That way, they are far more environmentally friendly than other products. The use of patented UV-C and ozone technology removes bacteria as well as reduces odour at fish processing plants for instance. Jimco has been awarded the EU Environmental

Award for its technology.

Expanding in South America

While Jimco South America’s work within the fish processing industry is primarily based in Santiago, Chile, they hope that the products on show at Expo Pesca & AcuiPeru can help them attract more South American customers within the fish industry who also experience fish odour problems at their processing plants.

– We started this process in Chile a few years ago when we sold our first FLO-K system to one of Chile’s largest fish processing plants. It has been a huge success, which is why we firmly believe that we will be able to expand to other countries in South America, who are in need of similar systems. It could for instance be very relevant for Peru, who are the number one exporters of fishmeal in the world, says Marcello Luppichini.

In recent years, Jimco South America has expanded heavily in South America. Disinfection of material such as seeds and grains has been in great demand in countries such as Brazil, Ecuador, Peru and Paraguay. Based on this success, Jimco South America hopes to use Expo Pesca & AcuiPeru as a starting point for another success
