On 18 July 2017, the Norwegian Seafood Council launched a new country of origin mark for Norwegian seafood, “Seafood from Norway” in Bangkok. The new mark is a symbol of origin and quality for all Norwegian seafood, farmed or wild caught in the cold, clear waters. It portrays uniqueness about Norway which associates with the rough climate and nature in which Norwegian seafood is raised.
Norway is a small country but still the second largest seafood exporter in the world. The unique combination of cold climate and crystal clear waters gives our seafood its superior quality and the unmistakable taste. Norway was built on its seafood industry with solid traditions of craftsmanship and care for nature. Today we are known all over the world for the way we manage our ocean resources in a sustainable manner. The new trademark "Seafood from Norway" is addressing these matters, founded on a genuine concern for environment and sustainability.
