Fish suppliers since 1977

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.

1980

The first factory 

The company opens its first factory, a cephalopod processing plant in Terrassa (Barcelona).

1983

The business begins to grow

FRIME acquires Casilla 80 in Barcelona’s Central Fish Market and establishes the company’s activity as a wholesaler.

1991

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.

1996

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.

1999

Exponential growth 

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.

2004

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.

2012

A strategic alliance 

The first agreement is signed with the Pesca Azteca fleet.

2013

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.

2018

Expansion continues

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.

2019

First branch outside Catalonia

A new branch opens in Vigo.

2021

The latest move
