Statt Torsk ASA will sell 1,600 metric tons of its farmed cod for €6.9 million ($7 million/NOK 70 million). In more detail, the agreement involves 2 weekly deliveries and approximately 30% of the company's initiated and expected production.
Regarding this announcement, CEO Gustave Brun-Lie said: "For STATT, this is a significant agreement with a customer who already knows the company and our fish. It is good for both the company and our new industry to get confirmation of the quality of farmed cod, especially with a customer who has high demands on both product and supplier.
"Although we will never be satisfied with the price we achieve, the agreement represents a good increase compared to last year's price achievement. The security that follows an agreement with such a customer is also important for the company's development in unstable times. Now we see the result of the changed production cycles from 18 to 30 months," he added.
In addition, the company recently entered into an agreement for financing of €3.4 million ($3.5 million/NOK 35 million) for the build-up of inventories to be able to carry out weekly deliveries of cod from September 2022.

From 2016-2021, the company carried out three pilot productions to clarify whether commercial production was possible.
