THE QUEST FOR QUALITY - Passion for fish products

THE QUEST FOR QUALITY - From Catch to table 

The strategy of Samherji hf. is:

  • To be in a leading position in fishing, processing and marketing seafood and thus to be in control of as large a portion as possible of the company’s value-added chain.
  • To run a strong company which earns a profit for its owners and provides its employees with an interesting working environment.

Samherji’s success is primarily based on the fact that as a food producer the company itself takes care of the entire process from the catch to the market. Samherji hf. employs qualified and enterprising personnel and management, has a powerful fleet, large fishing quotas and highly advanced onshore plants. Equipped in this manner, the company aims at a continuing leading position in the fishing industry, both in Iceland and at international level. Samherji´s policies on the Environment and Quality are here.
