Pure craftsmanship in everything we do
When you’ve been in this industry for over 60 years, craftsmanship comes naturally. At Morubel, we pride ourselves on being a true master in seafood processing.
Founded in 1954, Morubel is located in the Belgian coastal city of Ostend. Initially, the company salted and dried fish for export to Africa. Hence the name Morubel: 'la Morue belge'.
In the 70s, Morubel changed course, due to the EU imposing quotas and fish becoming less abundant. The existing salting and drying installations were replaced with state-of-the-art cooling and freezing equipment.
Since the 80s, shrimp has increasingly become our core business activity and it became apparent that large investments were required in modern processing techniques and machinery.
The current production facility was built in 1993, incorporating a complete separation between low- and high-care zones and the implementation of very strict hygienic procedures. Morubel was the first in the sector to obtain ISO 9002.
2016: the year of changes!
In March we merged with Ristic GmbH. This German company, specialized in frozen shrimp, is known for it's strong presence on the DACH market.
Since April, we are participating in Telson bv, a Dutch shrimp company specialized in fresh Northsea shrimp. This company is the proud owner of the revolutionary peeling machines made by the brothers Kant.
Combine these two companies with Morubel, and together they form the new European shrimp group: Shore nv.
