A delegation from United States-based Bumble Bee Foods was at Pacific Fishing Company Limited recently to see how they can improve its software information system to manage information sharing.

This was confirmed by Bumble Bee general manager Operations, Brett Carter, in a recent interview.

He said PAFCO was a critical part of Bumble Bee’s operations as it supplies 50 per cent of the cannery’s total tuna intake.

“The quality is excellent here because the staff have acquired years of experience, knowledge and they understand Bumble Bee’s standards and requirements and they’ve delivered very well,” Mr Carter said.

“So we cannot overemphasise the importance of Fiji for Bumble Bee. We just had a delegation up from our head office in San Diego.

“The whole crux of their visit was to see how they could upgrade the software information system so we can better improve the supply of information from the plant to the Bumble Bee processing operation.”

Bumble Bee is associated with seven other loin plants around the world in China, in Mauritius in Thailand, in Colombia.
