On January 26, Network & Drinks was held at Marels facilities in Copenhagen Marel Progress Point.
The participants were welcomed and introduced to Marel by Arni Oddur Thordarson, CEO Marel.
After the introduction, Lars Jøker, general manager Marel Salmon and Henrik Ladefoged, managing director Marel Denmark, presented some insights in Marel and the way they work to maximize the outcome of production and minimize the waste when using their equipment.
The presentations lead to an inspirational and interesting guided tour through three machines, that was presented with demonstrations, with large salmons entering in one end and finished consumer products reaching the other end.
As part of the Network & Drinks concept, 1-1 meetings between the participants was organized beforehand. The participants are matched based on interest and working field, to potentially reach new partnerships and interactions.
30 network meetings were held, and before the end of the program the first steps towards new collaborations was already made between some of the participants.
Finally Marel had arranged a taste of Icelandic and Danish cousine where the networking continued between the participants.
