Van der Lee Seafish buys own fishing boat

To be permanently assured of adequate supplies of North Sea fish (particularly plaice and sole) Van der Lee Seafish recently bought the fishing boat HD70 from partnership De Vries from Hoorn, including the associated fishing rights. This way, Van der Lee Seafish shortens the way from fishing to sales and the trade and fish processing company can rely on and plan on the basis of a fixed supply. Because of this, Van der Lee Seafish can better serve its customers.

New packaging department of Van der Lee Seafish is a strategic move

In April 2016, the new packaging department of Van der Lee Seafish was completed. After a thorough renovation and considerable investment in new packaging machines, Van der Lee Seafish is ready for the future. Not only fish and fish products can be packed on the new packaging line, but also all kinds of other food products such as potato products (fries) and other non-fish products, which makes the company less dependent on the fish industry. Currently, many airplane meals are packed in special boxes suitable for the convection oven. Additionally, new markets are operated such as school canteens, health centres and nursing homes. The unique feature of the new packaging line lies, among others, in the speed and very precise weighting (the gram accuracy), the diversity of packaging (bags, trays, wraps en cartonage) and the short changeover time. The machines are designed and built completely ‘custom-made’ for Van der Lee Seafish. The new packaging hall meets all current standards and features large windows which literally does not hide anything. The new packaging hall and packaging machines involve an investment of over two million euros.

This 500 gram frozen meal for two people is currently available in various Dutch retail shops.Germany, Italy and Spain have also expressed an interest. A launch will also take place there soon.

Introduction Packaging line

Introduction Packaging line

Van der Lee Seafish introduced its own packaging line. This is ideally suited for the cash and carry market and the retail market.

The Van der Lee Seafish packaging is really user-friendly and can go directly on the shelf. The clean, full colour design exudes quality and immediately draws the consumers attention. Available weights vary from 300 grams to 2 kilograms.

Of course we also supply neutral retail and consumer packaging. One of the possibilities is also a private label. Additionally our products are available in retail boxes (300 to 600 grams) and in bulk and large packages (5, 10 and 15 kilo). Products can also be packed individually. Furthermore any other customer desired packaging is possible.

Van der Lee Seafish and Tax Department Sign Agreement

Van der Lee Seafish and Tax Department Sign Agreement

The Horizontal Supervision Agreement was signed by the Tax Department and Van der Lee Seafish on 2 February 2012.

This agreement involves a new way of cooperation between the Tax Department on the one hand and Van der Lee Seafish on the other. A cooperation based on transparency and trust. A collaboration that emanates from their prior consultation if important tax issues, seem to be imminent. A collaboration that prevents a variety of additional verification, later.

The Tax Department therefore expresses its confidence in the financial processes conducted at Van der Lee Seafish BV. It arrives at this conclusion based on the long-standing excellent collaboration and additional research into the administrative structure and organisation of the Company research in which the accounting firm Flynth (formerly GIBO) has been extensively involved.

For Van der Lee Seafish BV, this represents a significant alleviation of the administrative burden and optimum use of the expertise of the client coordinator at the Tax Department. The Tax Department can now shift its priorities slightly as a consequence.
