High quality canned fish

Bornholms A/S has produced and developed tinned fish products in Nexø on the east coast of the island of Bornholm since 1915. Since its very beginnings, Bornholms has focused on good quality and sound industrial craftsmanship, principles which we continue to retain today in an interaction with modern production efficiency and quality assurance.

In 1963 Bornholms A/S was granted permission to label its products By Appointment to the Royal Danish Court.

In order to meet the great demand for fish of good, healthy quality, Bornholms A/S opened a new factory on Iceland in 2003, whilst yet another factory was established in northern Norway as 2008 drew to a close. We produce goods under our own Officer and Bornholms brands, as well as a number of international private labels. Bornholms A/S is one of the largest suppliers of tinned fish products in Scandinavia.

Bornholms A/S is certified in accordance with HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) quality control principles. In addition, we have recently been awarded MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certification and aim to be certified by BRC (British Retail Consortium) and IFS (International Food Standard) during autumn 2009.


Our vision is to develop, manufacture and distribute processed fish products so as to fulfill consumer expectations for a positive correlation between quality, health and price.

Based on our well-trained, dynamically competent organization, we wish to continuously increase our knowledge of consumer needs and attitudes so we are effectively capable of making and developing modern fish products.

Via powerful, dynamic relations, we wish to improve our position as an appealing manufacturer and supplier of fish products.
