IN BRIEF - For the Guinness World Records: The most expensive fish feed in history has been seized

Tuesday, May 19, 2020

Myanmar police say they have seized a huge haul of liquid fentanyl, the first time one of the dangerous synthetic opioids that have ravaged North America has been found in Asia’s Golden Triangle drug-producing region.

In a signal that Asia’s drug syndicates have moved into the lucrative opioid market, more than 3,700 liters of methylfentanyl was discovered by anti-narcotics police near Loikan village in Shan State in northeast Myanmar.

The seizure of the fentanyl derivative was part of Asia’s biggest-ever interception of illicit drugs, precursors and drug-making equipment, including 193 million methamphetamine tablets known as yaba. At 17.5 metric tons, the yaba almost equaled the amount seized in the previous two years in Myanmar.

The U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) said the scale of the bust was unprecedented and Myanmar’s anti-drug authorities had “dismantled a significant network” during a two-month operation involving police and military. Also seized were almost 163,000 liters and 35.5 metric tons of drug precursors, as well as weapons. There were more than 130 arrests.

M&S has more than 900 stores across the UK, most of which sell food.

Monday, May 18, 2020

Mowi has a signed a contract with Akranes, Iceland-based Skaginn 3X to install the company’s Sub-Chilling salmon cooling system at its Herøy, Norway processing facility.

This will be the largest salmon slaughterhouse that uses our patented cooling technology,” Skaginn 3X Norway General Manager Magni Veturlidason said in a press release. “This is an important milestone for us as it is yet another confirmation of the fact that the future of cooling and preserving the quality of seafood lies with our patented method of Sub-Chilling.”
