Went to Brussels to the European seafood trade show. Our aim was to look at equipment to help automate our processes. We finally met the man who had claimed to have invented the first machine that removed the small pin bones from small portion trout fillets. One look and we were satisfied have searched for such a machine for years. We purchased there and then. We also met the owned of Baader, the German company who manufacture the best trout filleting machines in the world. We attended their 85 year celebration in the Atonium in the heart of Brussels and managed to win the heart of its owner a Mrs Mullier who is 74 and who could associate with me as a woman in a man’s industry. She practically gave us a deal we could not refuse so it was a case of being in the right place at the right time. We now have a Baader 221 with only 6 hours on the clock for almost half of the recommended selling price!
