Benefitting for a long time from the wealth of the Mediterranean, the first processing factories of bluefish in Tunisia are among the oldest of the mediterranean basin. Some processing units were created at the begining of the 19th century.

This activity that combines the characteristics and taste of the mediterranean bluefish to the know-how of the Tunisian processors is nowadays developed with the acquirement of modern processing lines and the establishment of  health aspects management systems.

Thanks to the national upgrade program, started since 1993, the processing fish industy has been able to acquire the best assets to comply with the international standards. This modernization has involved all levels of the industry: from the fleet, to the sale points, not to mention processing companies and the means of transport.

This strategy has greatly contributed to imporve the level of production but has also allowed to upgrade processing industry and to conquer important export markets.
