Both wet salted and dried salted fish have several advantages. They are easy to transport and store, require no refrigeration, and are a good source of protein and nutrients.
Wet salted fish
The raw materials of our wet salted fish are fresh and frozen cod.
Wet salted fish is soaked in a saltwater solution before being packed in salt. The processing takes place in our new, modern facilities with highly efficient production and packing lines.
Nils Sperre AS has a leading position within production of wet salted fish, and our products are mainly exported to Southern Europe.
Dried salted fish (bacalao)
The raw materials of our dried salted fish are fresh and frozen cod, saithe (or pollock/coley), tusk (or cusk) and ling (or burbot).
Dried salted fish are processed and dried in modern production facilities with new and rational production lines. Our drying plant is one of the few automated plants in the country.
Nils Sperre AS has extensive experience of dried salted fish production. Our products of dried salted fish are mainly exported to Southern Europe and Central and South America.
