Other Media | EuropaAzul: The Port of Bilbao closes the year positively and faces its last major expansion

Monday, February 05, 2024

The Port of Bilbao obtains better results than the average of the State Ports because it is a multipurpose port with great logistical-industrial weight, serving its area of influence, and without dependence on transit traffic. In this sense, liquid and solid bulk is growing, and it is consolidating as a hub for special transport, with 3,600 entries. The commitment to the railway is maintained and the quota of containers that enter

or leave by train is already at 29%. However, port taxes remain frozen for the fourth consecutive year to support companies in their competitiveness.

IN BRIEF - Roskashestvo found out what kind of fish is used to replace saury in cans

Friday, February 02, 2024

Roskashestvo examined 19 brands of canned saury. As a result of the study, experts identified a counterfeit - instead of saury, they put Pacific sardine in the jar.

“The purpose of this study is to find out whether it is possible to buy high-quality canned food at a low price. Is it really the saury stated on the label that is in the canned food, and not the cheaper fish?” – explained the organization.

Only Pacific sardine was found in the products of one brand. “There was no saury in the canned food of the Sea miles brand at all. The packaging indicated that the product was made from saury and Pacific sardine, but only the latter was in the can. This is pure counterfeit,” commented Roskachestvo.

Another brand of canned food stated in the name that it was “imitation saury.” “Experts examined the product “Natural canned fish with added oil, sterilized from Pacific sardine (Iwashi) (pieces) - imitation saury” of the Spiro brand. There really is no hint of saury in them, only Pacific sardine. The presence of the phrase “imitation saury” in the name of canned food is dishonest behavior of market participants and manipulation of the name of the product, aimed at misleading the consumer and thereby obtaining additional profit,” the organization explained.
