Nordic Group and Domstein Join Forces to Export More Whitefish from Norway

Nordic Group prepares to be one of the leading exporters of whitefish products from Norway by taking over the fresh fish division of Domstein Fish in Trondheim.

Once completed Domstein will own 20% of Nordic Group. The annual turnover of Nordic Group is estimated to reach NOK 800 mill after the restructuring is done and it will strengthen Nordic Group’s position as one of the leading exporters of whitefish products from Norway.
