REUNIPECHE, a company specialising in the fishing, carving and distribution of large pelagic fish caught in the vicinity of Reunion Island (in the Indian Ocean), will take part in the European Seafood Exhibition trade show in Brussels (Belgium) from 3 to 5 May 2011. REUNIPECHE offers 80% fresh products, made up predominantly of three species – yellowfin tuna, albacore tuna and swordfish.


At the European Seafood Exhibition, in Brussels (Belgium), between 3 and 5 May of this year, REUNIPECHE (Booth 5-401), which is already well established in the European, Asian and American markets, will present its expertise and look to develop its international export activities. REUNIPECHE is based on Reunion Island, the French overseas département located in the Indian Ocean (near Mauritius).

Thanks to its rigorous approach to the fishing, storing, carving, packaging and transporting of goods, REUNIPECHE has become synonymous with quality produce that is perfectly suited for use in raw preparation. REUNIPECHE’s catalogue includes a wide variety of species from Reunion Island waters. These species include swordfish (which is characterised by its tenderness), yellowfin tuna (with its distinctive, fine, red meat), bigeye tuna (with its fattier meat), albacore tuna, mahi mahi, mako shark, and sailfish.


Using the longline fishing method, the fresh fish is caught in waters south east of Madagascar, around Reunion Island, and as far as Mauritius waters (FAO zone 51), using environmentally friendly methods that target the catch. Most of the fish are brought out alive, which ensures the quality and freshness of the fish.


Once on board, the fish is slaughtered according to the Japanese Tanagushi method. A nylon thread is circulated through the fish’s nerve centres to prevent stress and the production of toxins. The fish are then cooled in brine tanks containing sea water and ice, before being stored in ice inside a refrigerated hold.


By virtue of its quality and variety, REUNIPECHE’s offer is in tune with popular trends in the market for food products in European countries and in other developed nations, where there is a growing concern for health and a quest for healthy food. Fish is an excellent source of protein and is a valued alternative to meat.


About REUNIPECHE

REUNIPECHE, which is based in Le Port, on Reunion Island, combines fishing, carving, packaging and delivery of produce to airports. It is a fully integrated company and a reliable partner for the supply of fish. The company covers the entire chain – from the moment the fish is caught and delivered from the boat to supplying wholesalers.


REUNIPECHE sells fresh, high-quality produce while certifying its origin and providing a guarantee of health responsibility; the company is EEC-approved. Fresh pelagic fish sold by REUNIPECHE come from 17 boats that unload about 1,500 metric tons per year. The company currently earmarks 60% of its produce for export.


REUNIPECHE will be taking part in the European Seafood Exhibition (Booth 5-401), which will take place from 3 to 5 May 2011 in Brussels (Belgium).
