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.

According to an agreement reached between Nordic Group and Domstein, Nordic Group will take over the fresh fish division of Domstein Fish in Trondheim by the end of the year. 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.

Nordic Group AS is headquartered in Trondheim, Norway with two subsidiaries in Boston, Nordic Group, Inc. and Nordic Fresh, Inc.

“We have great expectations for the new organization where we have brought together capable professionals from both companies for a stronger effort towards greater sales of whitefish from Norway in the years to come.  We are strengthening our ability to do an even better job for our supply partners along the whole coast.  Both Domstein and Nordic Group have deep roots in this industry and strong market positions .  Our customers will be served with a greater variety of products and with the best service level possible.  We are very pleased that we have reached this agreement with Domstein.”
