The original idea for the Micvac method came from trying to preserve one of the most delicate foods there is – mussels. The inventor (and founding father), Dr Joel Haamer, conducted extensive research into marine food cultivation and preservation throughout his career. He found that the best way to preserve mussels was to get rid of all the oxygen and use a fast thermal treatment. In August 2000 Micvac was founded. The first customer signed with Micvac in 2005 and is still running a successful business!

Today, Dr Haamer’s innovative method with its unique packaging material and production equipment is being used by the food industry all over the world.
