Careful processing & quality control

Careful processing & quality control

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. Throughout the harvesting, season samples are taken consistently to examine the size, color and water- and oil content of the roe.

During the harvesting season, we extract several hundred tons of herring roe which is frozen into blocks of 20 kilos which is stored locally. This is a very gentle process where we always ensure that the product is not in contact with oxygen or unnecessary heat.

The process is developed to create a finished product that is as fresh as possible. The finished product is being stored in barrels which are sent to the capsule manufacturer in Fredrikstad, Norway.
