COMMITTED TO SEAFOOD PRODUCTS AND THE QUALITY OF OUR FRESH AND FROZEN FISH
WE PRIORITISE SUSTAINABILITY
AND FOOD SAFETY
Our commitment to sustainability, food safety and quality takes first place.
Koldfin was born from these values, based on the excellence required by one of the most important companies in the sale of sustainable fish: FRIME, The Sustainable Tuna Company.
Frime in numbers
THIS IS FRIME
30 years developing the most cutting-edge R&D in the sector.
More than 40 years in the industry have led us to market our products internationally, being present in more than 30 countries around the world.
LEADERS AND PIONEERS
We are the largest distributor of MSC tuna in Europe and one of the world's leading players.
Fish suppliers since 1977
The birth of FRIME
FRIME was founded by Salvador Ramon Gràcia, the second generation of the Ramon family to work in the fish industry.
The first factory
The company opens its first factory, a cephalopod processing plant in Terrassa (Barcelona).
The business begins to grow
FRIME acquires Casilla 80 in Barcelona’s Central Fish Market and establishes the company’s activity as a wholesaler.
A success based on family tradition
Salvador Ramon Mateo, son of Salvador Ramon Gràcia and current President of the company, joins his father’s company and works night shifts at Mercabarna while looking for a formula to expand the family business.
FRIME opens up to the world
The company starts exporting tuna to Japan and this business leads the company to take a special interest in the tuna sector.
Thanks to these exports, FRIME develops its own technology and draws inspiration from Japanese tuna thawing and freezing techniques.
FRIME acquires a warehouse in Mercabarna to process and export tuna and cephalopods throughout Europe and the company begins to create an international distribution network until its products reach 31 countries on a daily basis.
The aim is to improve on a daily basis
FRIME implements its first R&D team to look for a solution for freezing its product, enabling it to travel further without losing the quality and freshness of fresh fish.
A strategic alliance
The first agreement is signed with the Pesca Azteca fleet.
FRIME stands out as a leader
After several years of growth, FRIME moves to Arenys de Munt and opens two new plants. The new facilities, specialising in tuna, will accommodate new staff and will be able to meet the increased demand.
Further expansion of FRIME’s facilities is necessary to maintain the company’s direction and growth. 41,000 square metres are acquired in La Roca to house the company’s largest plant and new R&D facilities.
First branch outside Catalonia
A new branch opens in Vigo.
The latest move
Inauguration of the new La Roca plant.
Where are we going?
We lead the way in sustainable fishing that takes care of our oceans.
