Orio is an exporting wholesale business for the supply of species preferred by the Spanish market. It employs 4 and operates from the old port of Peterhead.
Fermin, our Operations manager is a Spaniard who chose to settle in Peterhead working in the fish trade with Spain. He attends the market selecting and buying the best of the day for preparation for export. Our main species are hake and witch with smaller volumes of haddock and cod.
The chilled facility of Orio washes, grades, weighs, ices and packs the fish for shipping direct to its client base across Spain. The customers are, in the main, supermarkets of medium size with a presence in most towns where a wet fish counter is recognised as a necessity and public service.
