For Laschinger Seafood, as part of Marine Harvest Consumer Products, the value chain begins with breeding and feeding farmed Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar).
The farmed Atlantic salmon is based on the legendary Mowi race of the species, distinguished by its size, colour and quality. Mowi salmon originated in the Fjordland region of Norway, swimming upstream against the icy currents of the Vosso river.
Careful selection and breeding over the fifty-year history of salmon farming have led to an ideal salmon for farming.
Having established itself as the world leader in salmon farming, Marine Harvest extended it activities to include salmon feed. This involves careful selection and processing of sustainable ingredients to provide precise and balanced nutrition.
Located off the coasts of Norway, Scotland and Ireland, the salmon farms are operated with close attention to fish welfare and care for the environment. Clear coastal waters with strong flows keep the salmon active, contributing to the excellent quality of a wide range of products for retail and food service.
Salmon products from Laschinger range from whole fish to fillets and portions (fresh and frozen) and to smoked and marinated salmon. In addition, there is a range of ready-to-heat and ready-to-eat products. The product range and packaging is constantly evolving, led by innovative new product development specialists seeking greater convenience and value for money.
