Herring is a fatty fish that becomes rancid quite fast if not handled and cooled properly. Here at Varðin, we have the experience and facilities to make sure, that it doesn’t happen. We have advanced cooling systems that keep the herring at -1,5 °C from catch to freezer. This ensures superior quality and freshness.
