The company Ubago, which specializes in smoked products, canned and salted fish, invested EUR 1.26 million to modernize and improve their production processes in the smoked product factory located in Parque Tecnológico de Andalucía (PTA).

The company, which has plants in Cadiz, Malaga, Morocco, Cape Verde and China, received a grant of nearly EUR 300,000 from the delegates of the regional government, Remedios Martel, and of Agriculture and Fishing, Mónica Bermúdez on behalf of the Board of Andalucia.

Some of the money invested was used to buy cutting edge machinery, which has "improved production lines, increased the quality in the treatment of products and achieved more efficiency in weighing, packaging and labelling," explained Martel.

"This action puts Ubago at the forefront of the industry," the official highlighted in remarks published by Sur Digital.

In the last 10 years, the firm grew from 96 employees to 1,300 employees among its five plants.

In these facilities there are different lines of products: salmon and other smoked fish, canned, salted products and frozen cod.

Apart from the increase of personnel, Ubago records an increase in turnover: from EUR 25 million in 2002 to EUR 109 million in 2010.

Its main client is Mercadona, which absorbs 76 per cent of its sales.

"Ubago has maintained a company policy of steady and prudent growth. It deserves the recognition of the society from Andalucia, Cadiz and Malaga. In such cases, it is a pleasure and an obligation for the government from Andalucia to offer support to achieve business improvement, help in the interest of the workers and of the society in Andalucia," said Martel according to Teleprensa World.

Meanwhile, Bermudez said the company "has evolved from the traditional smoked fish preserves to salted fish and cod, and has come to aquaculture, producing mussels on the coast of Andalucia."

Martel also emphasized the "internationalization race" initiated by the company and its positive impact on wealth and employment creation in the area. And he highlighted the high acceptance of its products on the market, "which have become a symbol of product quality from Andalucia."
