If it's in the sea, it's on our list


Our story

Nordic Seafood was founded in 1988 in the Danish fishing port of Hirtshals. With sales companies both domestically and internationally, Nordic Seafood is one of Europe’s leading distributors of seafood from the whole world. Nordic Seafood is owned by Nissui Corporation, Japan – one of the world’s leaders in seafood (fishery, aquaculture, and processing).

As importer, packer, and distributor, Nordic Seafood creates seafood value for our customers by staying ahead in terms of quality, dependability, and competitiveness. Our premises in Hirtshals include own production facilities and cold storage facilities. With our own sales companies and our business partners, we work closely with our customers as a flexible and development oriented partner.

We keep up-to-date with the latest trends and possible applications which benefits our customers and work to meet individual wishes.

Nordic Seafood: a single contact with a world of possibilities
Every single day fresh and frozen fish and shellfish arrives from all over the world at Nordic Seafood’s modern production facilities in Hirtshals. Nordic Seafood carries a stock ranging across more than 3,000 varieties of products and our close contact with NISSUI ensure full vertical integration in quality control and product flow from catch to the customer. In the vertical production process, safety along the whole line from catch to delivery is ensured by Nordic Seafood’s own control measures. Our quality control department checks the in-coming supplies as well as our own production before distributing products throughout Europe.

Fish and shellfish are healthy foodstuffs with endless gastronomic possibilities. Through our global network of suppliers, Nordic Seafood keeps up-to-date with the latest trends and possible applications. This knowledge benefits our customers whilst, at the same time, ensuring that we can meet individual wishes in such things as package dimensions, form of packaging and type of processing. This close communication with our customers exists on the personal level but also through Nordic Seafood’s participation in the leading trade fairs and exhibitions.

Our production methods can also satisfy special customer wishes about such things as the degree of processing and package size. In the vertical production process, safety along the whole line from catch to delivery is ensured by Nordic Seafood’s own control measures. Our laboratory checks the incoming supplies as well as our own production before distributing products throughout Europe, by means of an efficient and professional system of logistics.

Global Supply network

Through our dedicated network we source seafood from all over the world. Nordic Seafood has created one of the most comprehensive product ranges in Europe and to many we are perceived as a - one stop shop – with more than 3000 articles in stock - fulfilling the demand of a growing customer base. 

Global Links
NISSUI has established “Global Links” as one of the leading global supply chains in seafood (fisheries, aquacultures, and processors). Nordic Seafood is one of the leading companies in this network.

Global Links is an expression of a wish to combine the wealth of the oceans with scientific development and human values in a responsible utilization of resources for the benefit of the people of the world and with respect for future generations.

The thoughts behind Global Links are in harmony with Nordic Seafood’s long-standing basic values: the distribution of top-quality products based on ethical principles. This requires sustainable and reliable cooperation with our customers.

Core Values

One of our core values is our responsibility - towards quality, food safety and sustainability. To assure quality at all times on key product categories we have own offices in Vietnam, China and Chile. Our offices have years of experience with their local seafood industry, processing, and aquaculture. Our offices have their own quality control staff which is very important to provide extra security and assurance to our customers. 

On top of this we have QC departments in connection with our cold stores in United Kingdom, France and Denmark. Majority of our products is located next to our head office in Denmark and here our dedicated QC inspectors are quality checking goods and monitoring our suppliers in connection with quality and food safety. 

We actively support sustainability in the seafood industry and do not only see this it as a good investment but also our duty to secure the seafood resources of our planet for future generations.

Nordic Seafood actively supports sustainability in the seafood industry

Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) are international non-profit organizations created to promote solutions to the problem of overfishing and  responsible aquaculture. The MSC runs the only internationally recognized environmental certification and eco-labelling program for sustainability in wild capture fisheries. More than 400 processors, factories and seafood companies meet the MSC's traceability standard, the Chain of Custody, which ensures the blue MSC label is only placed on fish that comes from a certified fishery. The ASC has developed a certification program for responsible aquaculture and works with international producers and companies in the fish chain. The green ASC label makes it easy for the consumers that they are buying responsibly farmed seafood - fish, crustaceans and shellfish - towards environmental sustainability.
