For generations, herring has always been a valuable and important natural resource, and in addition a crucial source of healthy nutrients both for humans and animals.

Through efficient and environmentally friendly technologies, educated and competent employees and a genuine love for the environment, our investments and future-oriented production will provide sustainable value.
