Canning firm increases daily sardine output

  (VENEZUELA, 5/25/2010)

The State-run cannery Conservas Alimenticias La Gaviota increased its daily production to up to 30 tonnes of sardines, which are distributed throughout the network of public markets in several states of the country.

This company located in Cumana, Sucre state, produces between 600 and 700 boxes of sardines per day, with units of up to 100 cans, depending on its presentation, said plant production manager Luisa Gomez.

Similarly, it also processes sardines in cans of 125 and 160 grams, and obtains 250 cases of coffers in cans of 140 and 125 grams;

La Gaviota also produces fishmeal, about 60 daily sacks, that are distributed to food producers for the fattening of animals, due to its high protein content, Agencia Bolivariana de Noticias reports.

Gomez commented “Yes we have increased production, depending on the quantity of raw material that reaches the company. We must maintain the union between the workers, to move forward with the firm.”

Meanwhile, Pascuala Salmeron, head of the administrative area, affirmed that as from the day the company passed to government hands, production has been constant, and the workers have daily shifts with fixed pay and food vouchers.

The company boasts 281 permanent employees, who produce sardines and fishmeal that is commercialised in public markets like Mercado de Alimentos (Mercal), Productora y Distribuidora Venezolana de Alimentos (Pdval) and the Cadena de Tiendas Venezolanas (Cativen), said the head of distribution, Gerson Alfonzo.

In November 2009, the President of Venezuela ordered the forced nationalisation of La Gaviota, given that it is the duty of the State to guarantee the population’s food security, as the sardine is a strategic product for the Venezuelan consumer, he argued.

According to a decree, the company assets that will pass to the hands of the State include 8,000 sqm of land, industrial facilities, reception areas, transport, storage and production, machinery, industrial and office equipment, vehicles, supplies, work instruments and other materials for the development of the business activity.
