The Faroe Islands is situated in a great place for top quality salmon, much like Iceland. The Faroe Islands is a small, remote island group located in the middle of the North Atlantic (between Iceland and Scotland) with a population of less than 50,000 people. Despite its small size, the Faroese aquaculture industry stands out as a high quality producer of Atlantic Salmon. The industry is committed to maintaining the highest levels of fish welfare and sustainability.
The Faroe Islands Salmon is the result of passion and dedication to quality and a testament to the excellent natural conditions for salmon in the country. The entire value chain of the salmon is Global GAP certified. Other certifications include: ASC, HACCP, IFS and BRC.
Feed is one of the most important aspects when producing top quality salmon. Feed that the Faroe Islands Salmon gets is natural diet rich in sustainable marine resources from their own fish feed factories. The result is a salmon with a better fat content rich in the healthy Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.
All the fish which is used to produce the fish meal and fish oil is from approved sustainable fisheries and a big part are off-cuts or fish that would not have gone directly to human consumption. All this results in a higher quality salmon, produced sustainably for your enjoyment.
