Grimsby F.M.A was incorporated in 1911. Membership has declined in recent times due to retirement and consolidation, despite this there are 65 full members and 12 associate members. The majority of members are small processors employing between 5 - 20 staff. However, we are proud the large Grimsby based companies who supply 70% of the nations chilled seafood to the major high street retailers are members and support the work of the Association. Collectively members employ circa 2500 people. The Association has a board of six directors that spans both sides of the Humber. We are pleased to have several Hull based processors as members thus creating a strong and focused voice for the Humber processing industry.
The Chief Executive is responsible for the day to day running of the business. The reduction is members, the outsourcing of administration and the CEO working part-time is a recognition of necessary change to keep the Association. These changes will not deminish the importance of retaining the Association. We will continue to work with various external partners to develop a focused and cohesive industry.
