Other Media | SeafoodSource: UK grocery inflation drops, retail sales rise in August

Friday, September 22, 2023

U.K. grocery inflation dropped to its lowest level in more than a year, but consumers said they remain concerned about the prices they are paying for food, as well as the economy overall.

Grocery price inflation declined from 12.7 percent in July to 12.2 percent in August, according to the latest data from Kantar. In response, take-home sales from all grocery chains rose by 7.4 percent compared with the same period in 2022.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Europe puts a stop to 'greenwashing' and improves consumer information

Thursday, September 21, 2023

According to Wikipedia, greenwashing is “a term that describes the deceptive use of green marketing to promote a misperception that a company's policies or products are environmentally sound.” As consumers become more aware of the impact of products on the environment, the European Parliament and the Council have reached a provisional agreement on new rules to prohibit misleading advertising and provide consumers with better information about products. This agreement updates the existing EU list of prohibited business practices and adds to it several problematic marketing habits related to greenwashing and early product obsolescence.

Other Media | FishFocus: Food and Drink Federation Scotland response to ONS inflation figures.

Thursday, September 21, 2023

Food and Drink Federation Scotland’s Chief Executive Officer David Thomson said:

“It’s encouraging to see food and drink price inflation fall again this month to 13.6%. However, it remains at historically high levels and our industry is very conscious of the pressure this is putting on household budgets.

“The reason inflation has not yet fallen further is because the costs of food production remain high, including ingredients, energy, transport and labour.

IN BRIEF - Solid bluefin tuna was the first catch on a newly purchased boat

Wednesday, September 20, 2023

There are many fishermen who cannot quite relax when they are at home. They must go to sea. One of these is Roar Andre Nordheim from Bulandet at the far end of Askvoll municipality in Sogn og Fjordane. He usually works on board a coastal seine boat. About a month ago, he was able to prepare his own fast shark for fishing.

Rower Andre Nordheim from Bulandet has bought himself a great Viknes 10.30 . The seller was Wilfred Steinar Nordheim, also from Bulandet. With the Viknessjarken, which was previously named Setara, there was some fishing equipment, but not what would give him his first catch.

The barge, which has now changed its name from Setara to Vestøy, has a length of 10.30 meters and a width of 3.28 metres. Propulsion is provided by a Yanmar with 340 horsepower. The Viknessjarken was built by Viknes Båt og Service AS in 2009.

The first fish was a bluefin tuna

According to the acquisition application, fishing for whiting, blue halibut and other fish species is to be done in group 2 with line and lure. He will also fish with fishing lines for pocket crab, crayfish and lobster. In addition, he has set up bluefin tuna in his operational plans.

So far, there has been mostly hunting for bluefin tuna.
