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.
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.
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.
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.
