Food Safety

It begins with clean arctic water. And ends up with superior taste.

Nordlaks produces safe quality seafood from the clear arctic waters of Norway. A conscious choice of good locations, securing the welfare of the fish and clean environments, a balanced number of fish in the cages, correct feeding and frequent and tidy controls result in a healthy and good looking salmon. A continued and thourough quality control in the modern processing facility is also a solid guarantee for producing the most important charachteristic of salmon – the unbeatable good taste.

Nordlaks has very high quality requirements in the processing facility. We are working after HACCP quality standards (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point), and we are audited by qualified Food Safety Auditors twice a year.

We have been awarded certification by important international private and governmental institutions, in some cases on behalf of demanding customers.
