LEADER IN COD FARMING

Norcod is the result of a comprehensive evaluation project, which looked at the possibility of resuming an industrial investment in cod. Through observing biology, equipment, and market conditions, we have found that the conditions have never been better for success.

We employ the best people and work with leading industry partners to create optimum conditions for success. Our head office is centrally located in Trondheim, and we already have two modern facilities in operation, with ambitious plans for more locations to open in the coming years.

STRATEGY

Our strategy is to take control of the value chain from sea to fork. Through our partnership with leading seafood company, Sirena Group, we can coordinate the production and marketing efforts from day one.

This enables us to tailor our production to meet customer needs, and deliver a unique value proposition by offering programmed delivery solutions and supply outside the normal fresh cod season. We also have a well-established logistical setup that enables us to deliver our cod with very short lead times. Customers across Europe can receive cod within 2-5 days of the fish being extracted, ensuring complete freshness

SUSTAINABLE COD

With our focus on sustainable production, we will as far as possible use electric vessels and hybrid solutions, and underwater feeding for less energy consumption and a calmer habitat for cod and the environment.

OUR TEAM

Our team consists of leading professionals with broad expertise in aquaculture. Norcod has significantly expanded its team since its inception in the summer of 2018, and is led by CEO Hilde R. Storhaug.

“The conditions for industrial investment in cod have never been better. Great advances in breeding have given us a more robust cod, which grows better and gives a higher yield. We are proud to produce healthy seafood, contributing to increased value creation both locally and globally.

Norcod is positioned as a leading player in cod farming. Through commitment to people, cod, and nature, we take responsibility to remain economically, socially and environmentally sustainable. More of the world’s food production should come from the sea. Our operational and administrative organisation has the skills needed to supply the market with fresh, delicate, nutritious cod.

We aim for a blue future and I am privileged to, along with the strong and focused Norcod team, be able to lift the company further and contribute to blue value creation.”
