A boat is docked by the factory buildings where metal barrels are stacked outside. Inside the warehouse, men are working at wooden benches preparing different varieties of fish. Metal barrels of fish are lined up next to each other in the warehouse. A man rolls metal barrels, filled with ice, off a trailer and into the warehouses. A cart filled with trays of potatoes is outside the warehouse.

Inside the factory, men and women wearing white overalls and hats work on the machinery. A man empties a sack of flour into a large barrel, and a young man puts it on the mixing machine where a whisk rotates and mixes the ingredients. A conveyor belt of triangular, rectangular, and circular fishcakes moves along the factory production line. The fishcakes are place onto metal racks. The metal rack are then placed onto tall stacking trolleys and taken into a storage room. Women wrap the fishcakes in packaging and boxes. The boxes of fishcakes are loaded into a van outside the factory (Fish Cutlets fish Cakes, Super Crisps, Frozen Foods). The Summit Quick and Frozen Foods vans are driven out of the factory and down the road.
