From our fisheries and fish farms, our 4,500 employees deliver seafood corresponding to five million meals, every single day.
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 70 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 Farming segment comprises the Group's activities involving production of salmon and trout and includes harvesting and an increasing volume of filleting. The Group's companies in this segment - Lerøy Aurora, Lerøy Midt and Lerøy Sjøtroll - represent a major employer along the Norwegian coastline and strive to be visible and active in all the regions in which they operate.
The Wild Catch segment comprises businesses acquired in 2016, when Lerøy Seafood Group became the sole oner of both Havfisk AS and Norway Seafoods Group AS. These are businesses with substantial operations in the catching and processing of whitefish in Norway. Havfisk currently has nine trawlers, while Lerøy Norway Seafoods runs factories in Berlevåg, Båtsfjord, Forsøl, Kjøllefjord, Melbu, Stamsund, Sørvær and Tromvik. Lerøy also has facilities in Bulandet and on Sommarøy island.
VAP, Sales and Distribution
Lerøy has a global reach within VAP, Sales and Distribution, and it works with sales, marketing, product development, distribution and simple processing of the Group's own raw materials, as well as a large volume of raw materials from partners and a network of suppliers. In this sement, Lerøy Seafood Group has wholesalers, factories and seafood centres in a number of different markets.
The VAP, sales and distribution segment is mainly involved in high-value processing of salmon and trout, but also other species. The segment's facilities are located on the island of Osterøy outside of Bergen, in Smøgen in Sweden, in the Netherlands and in Turkey. The segment's products are increasingly sold to the global market.
