Lerøy Seafood Group has done a lot right in 2022 when we look at our development as a company, we have developed new products, new markets and taken good measures that further improve our sustainability.
We have 6,000 skilled employees in 14 countries. We are proud of everything we already contribute based on the fact that we harvest and produce 5 million meals of food every day throughout the year. However, there are big dark clouds over the aquaculture part of the business with the ongoing debate about ground rent tax.
In Norway, we have 3,600 employees across 60 municipalities, we have purchased goods and services in 2022 for a total of NOK 19 billion across 5,100 suppliers in 300 Norwegian municipalities.
