Italian smoked salmon producer Fjord SpA and Norwegian salmon processor Sjotroll Havbruk AS announced that they have obtained Friend of the Sea certification.

Both companies are leading producers in the salmon industry. Fjord represents more than 15 percent of total Italian smoked salmon production, and Sjotroll owns six hatcheries and 25 farming operations.

“We are enthusiastic in being part of the Friend of the Sea project,” said Antonio Pellin, Fjord managing director. “We are in the process of having all other suppliers assessed and some products are already out on the shelves labeled. Friend of the Sea label explains [to] our demanding customers that our company cares about the environment and conservation.”
