We take pride in our history and invest in our future
Royal Greenland makes new ground for the seafood industry by combining the proud Greenlandic fishing and hunting traditions with Denmark’s position as one of Europe’s greatest fishing nations.
For more than 230 years, Royal Greenland has been associated with first class seafood. Our history dates back to 1774, where trade in Greenland was united under the Danish State, which founded The Royal Greenlandic Trade Department.
Trademark for High Quality
The Royal Greenland Trade Department had a state monopoly until 1950 and existed up to 1985, when it was converted to the export company Proeks (later Royal Greenland). Soon after, Royal Greenland was established as a trademark for Greenlandic articles of particular high quality. In 1979, the Greenland Home Rule Government took over the corporation and in 1990, it was formed as an independent limited company. Today, Royal Greenland is considered the economic flagship of Greenland.
For centuries, Royal Warrants have been granted to companies and individuals servicing and supplying the Royal Family and the Royal Household. In 1985, Royal Greenland was granted such a warrant and we are proud to be a steady supplier of quality seafood to the Royal Danish Court.
Investing in the future
As a leading company on the seafood market, we focus on improving our techniques and products to match the needs of the modern consumer.
Our latest investments include:
- Refurbishment of our two main prawn processing facilities in Ilulissat and Sisimiut, Greenland, with state of the art equipment, allowing us to provide even better quality prawns.
- A lumpfish roe processing facility in Germany allowing us to offer fresh roe from our own fisheries in Greenland.
- A new factory in Denmark focusing on Modified Atmosphere Packaging technology, or Easy Pack as we call it here at Royal Greenland.
Royal Greenland also cooperates with private and public research institutions in order to continue developing our processing, production and distribution techniques.
