Edo Abels Becomes Morubel MD

  (BELGIUM, 9/3/2014)

Edo Abels has joined Belgian frozen shrimp processor Morubel as Managing Director.

Edo Abels is 45 years old and studied commercial economy in Groningen, the Netherlands.

After a long career at Dutch retailer Ahold/Albert Heijn headquarters in various commercial positions and four years as commercial director at Koopmans, a Dutch company manufacturing flour and baking products, Edo made a move to the seafood industry in 2012 as CCO and later CEO at Heiploeg BV.

On June 30th Morubel was acquired by funds managed by Bencis Capital Partners.

According to the company the strong partner will guide Morubel to further growth by deploying the current dynamics.

Bencis Capital Partners is an independent investment company that supports entrepreneurs and management teams to achieve their international growth ambitions.

For over 15 years Bencis has been investing in strong, successful companies in the Netherlands and Belgium with various investments in Food & Beverages. Bencis works with 20 professionals, has offices in Amsterdam and Brussels and currently owns investments in 18 companies employing about 9,000 people.

Morubel offers a range of packaging options for its produce, according to the product characteristics, usage and target markets (retail, food service or industry).

About Morubel

Founded in 1954, Morubel is located in the Belgian coastal city of Ostend. Initially, the company salted and dried fish for export to Africa. Hence the name Morubel: 'la Morue belge'.

Morubel is equipped with 3 processing lines and 6 packaging lines.

In the 70s, Morubel changed course, due to the EU imposing quotas and fish becoming less abundant. The existing salting and drying installations were replaced with state-of-the-art cooling and freezing equipment.

Since the 80s, shrimp has increasingly become Morubel's core business activity and it became apparent that large investments were required in modern processing techniques and machinery.

The current production facility was built in 1993, incorporating a complete separation between low- and high-care zones and the implementation of very strict hygienic procedures. Morubel was the first in the sector to obtain ISO 9002.
