From fjord to table
Every day, our 4,900 employees contribute to the supply of Norwegian seafood corresponding to five million meals to more than 80 different markets.
Lerøy is involved in every stage of the production of salmon and trout, catch, and processing of whitefish and shellfish. In other words, we are involved not only in catches and fish farming, but we also package and process fish at our plants and distribute thousands of different seafood products to shops, restaurants, canteens and hotels - in more than 80 countries worldwide.
One important element in Lerøy Seafood Group’s strategy is to be a fully integrated supplier of the company's key products, and the business is operated, as mentioned, via a number of subsidiaries in Norway and abroad.
The Group reports within three segments:
- Wild Catch
- VAP, Sales and Distribution.
The Group views itself as a local company with a global perspective, and shall have local roots in the locations where they have operations. This helps ensure that the Group makes a contribution in all local communities, irrespective of region and nationality.
The Wild Catch segment comprises businesses acquired in 2016, when Lerøy Seafood Group became the sole owner of both Havfisk AS and Norway Seafoods Group AS. These are businesses with substantial operations within the catch and processing of whitefish in Norway. Lerøy Havfisk currently has ten trawlers, while Lerøy Norway Seafoods runs factories in Berlevåg, Båtsfjord, Forsøl, Kjøllefjord, Melbu, Stamsund, Sørvær and Tromvik.
The Farming segment comprises the Group's production of salmon, trout and cleaner fish up to the time of harvest. The Group has three fully integrated value chains for production of salmon and trout, located in North Norway, Central Norway and West Norway. The Group's companies in this segment - Lerøy Aurora (North Norway), Lerøy Midt (Central Norway) and Lerøy Sjøtroll (West Norway) - are major employers along the Norwegian coastline and strive to be visible and active in all the regions in which they operate.
VAP, Sales & Distribution
Lerøy has a global reach within the VAP, Sales & Distribution segment. The company works with sales, market and product development, distribution and simple processing of the Group’s own raw materials, but also a large volume of raw materials from partners and a network of suppliers. Lerøy Seafood Group has wholesalers, factories and fish-cuts in a number of different markets worldwide.
The VAP, Sales & Distribution segment is involved in processing of mainly salmon and trout, as well as other species. Our facilities are located on the island of Osterøy outside of Bergen, in Smøgen in Sweden, in Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, France, Portugal, Italy and Turkey. The segment's products are increasingly sold to the global market.
