Sales of Norwegian seafood exports are going swimmingly. As 2013 got off to a better start than last year, British food outlets are also doing well.
The 15 percent year-on-year increase was a record for January, according to Norway’s Seafood Council.
Last month’s sales were about EUR 644.81 million (NOK 4.8 billion), up roughly EUR 85.44 million (NOK 636 million).
“January’s increase was primarily due to an increase in salmon exports of salmon. Strong demand meant Norwegian salmon producers exported more salmon and at higher prices than the same time last year,” says the Council’s Egil Ove Sundheim in a statement.”
