Young’s ‘in talks with Nor­we­gian salmon sup­plier’

Fish Farmer - - News Processing And Retail -

YOUNG’S has re­mained silent on re­ports from Nor­way that it is ne­go­ti­at­ing a large scale deal with a well known Nordic sup­plier to buy salmon and white fish.

The in­dus­try web­site ilaks.no said that rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Nor­we­gian Fish Com­pany had vis­ited a num­ber of seafood com­pa­nies in the UK re­cently, in­clud­ing the Young’s head of­fice in Grimsby.

Its chief ex­ec­u­tive, Jørn-Gun­nar Ja­cob­sen, told Ilaks that it was look­ing for new busi­ness in Bri­tain, where it sees promis­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

He added that Young’s was re­spon­si­ble for 40 per cent of the fish con­sumed in the UK and was one of the largest users of farmed salmon in Europe. He said that Young’s had re­sponded pos­i­tively to the ap­proaches.

The next step, said Ja­cob­sen, was to in­vite large UK pur­chasers such as Young’s to visit the Nor­we­gian Fish Com­pany’s fa­cil­i­ties in Nor­way, where it could show off its modern fac­to­ries and its lat­est tech­nol­ogy.
