The extraction process has been developed in the laboratory in Ørsta. All batches of herring roe are carefully examined and tested by our team of experts. The team is present at the fishery throughout the harvesting season to ensure that the quality of the herring roe meets our high quality standards. Through the process, samples are takes consistently to examine the size, color and water- and oil content.
