Seagems Norway AS

The story of Seagems Norway starts with the realization that global demand for seafood and proteins is on the rise, and our oceans’ resources are under immense pressure. This creates new opportunities for the industrial operations. Seagems Norway’s mission is to upcycle existing residual raw material from the seafood industry, providing the global food industry with innovative, high-quality and tasty ingredients for food applicational purposes. Simultaneously, creating new revenue streams for the many seafood producers.

With more than 30 years of experience from the seafood ingredient industry Seagems Norway sees the urgency in demand for a new model to current operations that will benefit the producers, end-users and the environment all together. Through the valorization of residual raw material at the location of processing, through the use of innovative technologies, Seagems Norway is able to retain the freshness of the raw material and valuable nutritional compounds, as well as reducing the carbon footprint of transportation, as the semi-finished product is in a highly concentrated  form. This model builds on well-established and long-lasting relationships with the suppliers of raw material, where Seagems Norway heavily contributes with know-how and experience. Seagems Norway develops ingredients in close collaboration with its customers in order to meet their specific needs and applicational use. Today, Seagems Norway’s ingredients are a vital part of more than 2 billion meals served around the world. Since 2018 Seagems Norway has been building an organization with a key focus on lean and innovative scaling, with a fundamental focus on sustainability, bringing seafood ingredients to the global market.
