The agreement was signed by the first deputy general director of the RRPK Saveliy Karpukhin and the general director of COFCO Far East Tianxu Bai, representatives of the Russian-Chinese Business Council (RKBC) took part in the ceremony. 

As noted by Tianxu Bai, RRPK is a leader in the production of high quality food products, including seafood. Therefore, the company plans to develop cooperation and help promote high-quality products in the Chinese market.

Cooperation with a Chinese partner will allow RRPK to ensure product quality control for the Chinese market at all stages, from the catch to the end consumer. According to Savely Karpukhin, the Chinese market has always been and remains one of the highest priorities for the RRPK.

And the new partnership will make it possible to significantly advance in the development of sales of deeply processed pollock products and other products from wild white fish caught in the cleanest waters in the world.

The production of surimi RRPK began thanks to the construction of a new fleet of modern super trawlers and the commissioning of the first such vessel, Vladimir Limanov. By the end of 2021 alone, it is planned to produce 4-5 thousand tons of a new product. Production volumes will grow with the commissioning of supertrawlers under construction.
