Quality control leads to healthy lunches

23 February, 2016 - Port Hardy, B.C.

Did you know that two fillets from every boatload of salmon arriving at Marine Harvest's Port Hardy Processing Plant are tasted as soon as they are processed to ensure product quality?

The fresh fillets are taken to the lunch room and baked or poached with only a touch of salt and pepper so that employees may taste the flavour of the fish. It is easily one of the favourite tasks in a day working at the plant.
