About us

Through our tireless search for the best raw materials, careful and thorough processing and our aspiration to always achieve the right flavour, we have created a selection of products that we are proud of.

About us

Today, we can boast that our small family business has become something more. We now offer our products to all parts of the world, originating from the production facility at Ellingsøya where we grew up. We have partnerships with clients and restaurants across the world. The business has grown big, but we maintain our traditional production methods to ensure stable quality over time.

As children, we used to run in and out of the facility, and now it's our turn to pass on our traditions and our commitment to the next generations. A commitment to making the best salted and dried fish in the world.

Making the world's best salted and dried fish isn't easy. But that's exactly what we strive to do.

Sustainability

Every year, Norwegian and international research provides a basis for advice on sustainable fishing in the north-eastern Atlantic. Norway then leads the negotiations on quotas with other countries fishing the same stocks. Mathias Bjørge AS ensures that all our products originate from regulated and sustainable populations (ICES and MSC).

Food safety and quality control

The Norwegian seafood industry is subject to strict food safety requirements. Several bodies form a system that checks and monitors that the requirements are met in all parts of the production chain. The control bodies that monitor food are the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, the National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research (NIFES), the Directorate of Fisheries and the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries.

Our certifications:

MSC - Marine Stewardship Council

MSC is an environmental certification that is only used for wild caught seafood that can be traced all the way back to an MSC-certified sustainable fishery. These sustainable fisheries only harvest viable populations and ensure that there are healthy populations left in the sea, while also preserving the marine biotopes.

FSSC 22000

An FSSC 22000 certificate is proof of a company's ability to carry out its activities in a way that ensures food safety. The certificate also shows that the company has implemented measures to prevent food fraud and external threats.

FSSC 22000 is an ISO-based standard recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
