History

Morpol was founded in 1996 in Ustka on the Baltic coast of Poland; an optimum location to receive fish by sea and road and for despatch of products by road and air to customers around the world. The Pomeranian area has a long history of fishing and fish processing, offering a workforce ready to meet the stringent requirements of Morpol.

Continual investment and process plant innovation has created an ultra-modern facility that operates on a massive scale combined with close attention to product detail, food safety and total traceability. In 2013 Morpol became a part of Marine Harvest ASA, a world leader in salmon farming and one of the world’s largest seafood companies.
