Our Codfish has been produced for more than 60 years in keeping with the old world traditions.

Our daily commitment to our customers compels us to select the wild Codfish “Gadus Morhua” from Iceland, the most highly esteemed among the different species and fished exclusively with hook and line.

All our products are prepared from Codfish pieces of more than 30 lb and larger, opened “butterfly” style and salted for 3 months in Iceland. During this process, the gelatine that will impregnate the white fish is released from the backbone.

A good desalting process requires slow hydration, then boning, which is done entirely by hand, and finally desalting.

It is a slow process, but we believe it is necessary in order to obtain a product that is characteristically soft and tender while retaining the “cured” flavor that is essential in traditional salting.

Our Codfish complies strictly with European Union sanitary regulations, as well as FDA requirements.

All our products are worthy of the confidence our customers have in us.
