MORUBEL celebrates 70 years of seafood love

Published on 25/01/2024

70years.  It's been a long journey.

And this long journey would not have been possible without the support of our employees, customers, stakeholders and suppliers who have been loyal to us all these years.

A very long way has come from processing fish in 1954 to processing shrimp in 2024.
There are better working conditions, attention to food safety, sustainability and transport.
But in all that time, one thing has remained unchanged: the love for our profession!

And this will remain the case for a long time because we are ready for the next 70 years!

Morubel statement on slave labour producing shrimp in Thailand

Published on 12/06/2014

In view of the recent press information on labour abuse by the company CP Thailand and in response to any questions our customers have concerning the origin of their products supplied by Morubel, we can confirm that we did not buy any shrimp or prawns in Thailand at all during the last 14 months.


Morubel is a member of BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) and  we are committed to have social audits with our suppliers in risk countries. Social compliance is an improvement process and compliance cannot be guaranteed in one go, but through social auditing corrective action plans can accurately be addressed and controlled, and further steps in the supply chain can be taken.
