Healthy food for everyone

Our fishing activities all focus on fishing for human consumption. After all, everyone deserves healthy food.

Our focus on healthy food

With our sustainability strategy, we concentrate on six focus area's. One of those focus areas is healthy food.

Contributing to people's health by making fish available is our raison d'ĂȘtre. It is our everyday pride and joy. The world population is growing, and so is the need for affordable, protein-rich food. Cornelis Vrolijk contributes by supplying millions of fish meals around the world every day. A large part of our pelagic fish is sold to West African countries, where mostly less affluent consumers are provided with affordable and nutritious fish.

In western countries, healthy food is an important theme as well. Fish, and especially oily fish, contributes to a healthy lifestyle. Within this theme, we also work on avoidance of food waste.

Cornelis Vrolijk in West Africa

Cornelis Vrolijk contributes to the growth in the need for affordable and protein-rich food by supplying millions of fish meals worldwide every day. A substantial amount of our pelagic fish, such as blue whiting, is traded to West African countries, such as the Ivory Coast, where mainly underprivileged consumers are provided with affordable and nutritious fish. Thanks to our quality standards, we provide the highest quality products for all our consumers.

The mamas of the Grand-Bassam Fish Market

The fish of Cornelis Vrolijk is eagerly bought in Ivory Coast. Here, the fish is sold in the market, fresh or smoked. People appreciate the fish because it is fresh, the right size and of good quality. A nutritious and healthy meal full of protein.

Fish in Red Sauce

In the Ivory Coast, people eat fish every day. When fish is bought, it is carefully checked that it is fresh. Compared to meat, fish is affordable, nutritious, and healthy. Which preparation is chosen depends on the sauce. An important step for the perfect meal.

Codipac & Cornelis Vrolijk

From the beginning, the partnership in the Ivory Coast between Codipac and Cornelis Vrolijk has been present and involved. Through Codipac, the products make a big impact on the Ivorian market. Good quality at an attractive price and available to all, private and wholesale. Remote areas are also reached because of the freezer trucks. We taught people how to best prepare fish so that it can be kept outside the refrigerator for a longer period of time. By doing so, we were able to contribute to healthy and nutritious eating habits.

Other focus areas

Within our sustainability strategy, we have six focus areas. In addition to healthy food, we also concentrate on biodiversity and ecosystems, emissions, care for people, circularity and supply chain responsibility.
