Dalvik Whitefish Plant

Our Dalvik plant is one of the most sophisticated white fish plants in the North Atlantic. The catching
is controlled by the plant with quality and needs in mind. All our products are super chilled under
0°C during production to keep material under best possible conditions throughout processing.
Newly installed machinery gives us the possibility to vacuum pack fresh portions and freeze after
packing. We do have years of experience in producing for European retailers and pride ourselves in
delivering excellent service to our customers.

A new more technically advanced house is being built and will be taken into use in the year 2020
