Seafood TIP Now Operating Under Kontali Brand
Acquired by Kontali back in October 2020, Seafood TIP will now be operating fully under the Kontali brand from March 31, 2022.
In October of 2020, Norway-based company Kontali announced the completed acquisition of Seafood TIP, with Seafood TIP becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Kontali, based in the Netherlands. Seafood TIP covers various species, with a focus on shrimp. On March 31, 2022, Seafood TIP will be operating under Kontali and the Kontali brand, discontinuing the Seafood TIP brand name, with the goal of strengthening Kontali’s position as the leading global player in systemising the world of fisheries and aquaculture.
“This is a great next step towards our ambition of being the global reference point for seafood insight”, says Managing Director of Kontali, Thomas Aas. “As a result of this, we can offer a unique competitive advantage for new and existing customers through world-leading data insight, now covering an even wider range of species.”
Kontali is a leading competence centre for aquaculture and fisheries. With more than 30 years of experience, Kontali has been involved in developing the aquaculture industry nationally and internationally through data collection, competence, and analyses.
“Data modelling is a big part of Kontali’s success and by having salmon and shrimp under one collective umbrella we can now focus on further developing our predictive models for shrimp, which will enable our clients to get a better understanding of the industry and be provided with better forecasts, an important factor in decision making. By becoming a part of Kontali, we will strengthen our products and services for our customers, as a global reference point for shrimp insight”, says Sander Visch, Managing Director of Seafood TIP.
Seafood TIP is a platform which provides intelligence on trade, production, and market developments of various seafood species. With Kontali’s insight and experience, combined with Seafood TIP’s knowledge and network, the aim has been to increase the transparency across the seafood supply chain through data analysis and market intelligence.
