WHO ARE WE

Brødrene Sperre is a family owned enterprise, established by the Sperre brothers in the 1930's at Ellingsøy, Norway. They saw opportunities in the fish available along the coast of Norway, a coastline with cold clear sea water full of nutrition.

The two Sperre brothers began producing salted and dried codfish in the 1930's.

Since the company’s foundation, it has grown to become one of Norway’s largest producers of wild caught fish, with several facilities throughout the Norwegian coast.


Our main business areas are dried salted codfish and pelagic fish, as well as trading of most kinds of frozen wild caught fish from the cold clear waters outside the Norwegian coast.

VISION

We shall be the first choice throughout the entire value chain on the fish’s journey from the ocean to the plate.
