Pure origin

We have one of the purest products on the planet. A major reason for this is our prawns' unique origin - the deep Arctic waters of the Barents Sea. The freezing conditions mean that the Coldwater prawn matures more slowly than other, more common variants.

Pure planet

Coldwater Prawns of Norway knows it owes an incalculable debt to the planet. Without the fruits of Mother Nature our business would simply not exist. This is one of the reasons why we have always taken our environmental responsibilities extremely seriously.

The sustainability of the Norwegian prawn fishing industry is documented by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). Coldwater Prawns of Norway has MSC certification, helping to consolidate Norway as the nation with the greatest share of environmentally certified fisheries anywhere in the world. KRAV is Sweden’s best known environmental label for food, based on ecological considerations and with particularly strict requirements relating to animal welfare, health, social responsibility and environmental impact. This is an international body that sets a host of sustainable fishery criteria, including compliance with a variety of legal requirements, non- overexploited target stock and zero relevant impact on the seabed. It also sets waste management and social accountability standards. The mark in the colors of the Norwegian flag - red, white and blue, guarantees that Norwegian seafood originates from cold, clear Norwegian waters and contributes towards a stronger position for Norwegian seafood globally.

Pure gourmet food straight from the arctic

Caught in the deeply cold, clean waters of the Arctic, our Norwegian prawns are of a quality and purity that makes them without equal.

The water temperature and depths mean that our coldwater prawns grow at a slower rate than other, more common variants. As a result, they possess a uniquely rich, distinctive flavour.

Add to this a truly individual, seductive texture and you have a range of premium prawn products that are making waves with gourmets around the world.

GLOBAL SUCCESS

We’re passionate about prawns. This - and our unrivalled focus on quality, purity and the environment - has brought Coldwater Prawns of Norway true global success.

Our roots go back to 2007, when three former competitors in the prawn industry decided to join forces and form Coldwater Prawns of Norway. Little did we know that the results would see discerning customers around the world enjoying our Norwegian prawns of superlative quality.

Pride in purity and the planet

As far as we are concerned, when it comes to the welfare of the planet, it takes absolute integrity and commitment to make a difference. Our attitude is ‘it can’t get pure enough’.

From our head office in Aalesund, we take pride in our unwavering commitment to excellence. Adhering to the very highest possible standards has not only helped us become Norway’s largest exporter of coldwater prawns, we are also the only supplier in the world to deliver 100-per-cent, Norwegian coldwater prawns, individually quick frozen, with full MSC (Marine Stewardship Council), FOS (Friends of the Sea) and KRAV certification.

For us, however, this is not enough. That’s why we created our own certification brand, Pure Gourmet, which sets even stricter demands as regards sustainable harvesting.

BETTER FOR THE PLANET

Research conducted in the UK has indicated that frozen food may be instrumental in reducing carbon emissions by the food industry in the future. Researchers discovered that a frozen meal for a family of four produces five-per-cent less CO2 than a chilled alternative. They concluded this after looking at various CO2 emission points in the food production chain, from slaughter or harvest to the final appearance on the dining table.
