Strategy & Stakeholders

The foundation we build our consulting business on is our strong international research and development background. We provide consultation worldwide to institutes, policy makers and companies in the food industry, especially in the marine sector, which is our stronghold.

We work with leading institutes, organizations and companies across the private and public sectors and are a well-known partner within global food and biotech R&D.

We have played a leading role in large international projects such as FarFish (Horizon2020), EcoFishMan (FP7),  Whitefishmall (Nordic Innovation), Amylomics (FP7), MareFrame (FP7), Arctic Bioeconomy (NMR) and  PrimeFish  (Horizon2020) and we have an ongoing fruitful cooperation with many of the largest food and ingredient companies in the world such as PepsiCoNestlé and Roquette.

Value creation within the bioeconomy and the development of policy and infrastructure in areas in need of understanding and training in the food production is one of our expertise. We have participated in numerous developmental programs with governments and developmental aid funds alike. Such projects include working with Tanzanian government improving fisheries in Lake Tanganyika, courses and consultation for the Kenyan government on quality issues for fish, the treatment of the catch, fish processing methods and packaging. And, last but not least, Matís’ participation in the United Nation University Fisheries Training Programme (UNU-FTP) where Matís has handled the specialist training in Quality Management of Fish Handling and Processing part of the program.

For years Matís has been considered a valuable partner in multiple diverse projects and has taken part in successful cooperation with our partners around the world. Our success would not be possible without our strong belief in integrity.

Integrity, whether it be science integrity or business integrity, is the cornerstone of our operation.
