Pelagia expands in Denmark
Pelagia is established in Skagen, Denmark, producing marinated herring in our operation in Pelagia Denmark AS. We have searched for harbour areas for expanding our business in Denmark, and have looked into the possibilities in several harbours. The optimal solution is found in Skagen and we have reached an agreement with Port of Skagen authorities for the area below.
Pelagia will build the production facility for the future focusing on high quality value added products and increased production of marinated products of herring in particular. We are very excited of the possibilities of this expansion being able to serve both our customers and suppliers of fish with an added service. Our suppliers of fish will have the possibilities to deliver for both seafood and industrial purposes. The expansion is part of using 100% of the fish and increasing our innovation in product development of the healthy pelagic products.
