SUSTAINABLE NORWEGIAN COD FARMING

The global market demands stable deliveries of fresh cod. For the first time, high-quality farmed cod can be produced on a large scale to meet demand. With wild fish stock under pressure and fishing quotas for cod being cut, Norcod aims to fill the gap in the market and provide sustainable fresh cod.

Sustainable cod

Norcod is a leading producer of farmed cod, our cod is a highly sustainable food and protein source that is aligned with several of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Our devotion to sustainable cod is conveyed in the actions and behaviour we have towards People, Cod and Nature.

DEVOTED TO PEOPLE, COD, NATURE

People

we value our employees and partners, ensuring an inclusive culture where everyone should thrive and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Cod

It is our responsibility to give our fish the best conditions to thrive.

Nature

We take responsibility for our work and its impact on society. Health, safety and the environment are always our top priority. We value hard work, discussions and change, and making the right choices for our planet.

PREMIUM NATURAL COD

Norcod has access to the best fish, bred for optimal health and yield. They are farmed in their natural cold-water habitat along the coast of Central Norway. The global market is increasingly demanding stable deliveries of fresh cod all year round. For the first time, high-quality farmed cod can be produced on a large scale to meet demand.

A REAL GAME CHANGER

CO2 FOOTPRINT

Sustainable practices are key for providing food to an ever-growing population. Since aquaculture has a very low carbon footprint it’s a great eco-friendly protein choice.

THE FUTURE

Only 2% of the world’s food source derives from our ocean, by investing in Cod farming we can protect our ocean and ensure the planet has enough food.

HEALTH

Cod is a brilliant healthy addition to the diet due to its incredibly lean and protein rich nature. In fact 96% of the calories in Cod are from the protein content.

ANIMAL WELFARE

The welfare of our fish is of uppermost importance. We take considerable pride in looking after our Cod, keeping the highest standards possible to ensure a healthy and happy Cod.

"I was delighted to have a sample of Norcod's new farmed cod. A nice and healthy-looking fish with thick, firm fillets, excellent texture, aroma and white transparent fresh-looking meat. Exactly what I am looking for in cod"

- Jesper Redecker Hansen | Fiskerikajen, Denmark

"Everything about the product is inspiring and in the spirit of our restaurant. I look forward to following the journey of the product, which is sure to end up in the kitchen of our restaurant"

- Brian Mark | Chef at the Michelin restaurant Søllerød Kro
