Since its inception, Norwegian Shores has been relentless in finding the best practices for ensuring the safety of our customers. Our oysters are often consumed raw, and utmost caution needs to be taken before shipping the product from our facility.
Long depuration of the shells in our state-of-the-art cleaning facility, combined with technological innovations has established us as the leading provider of safe oysters of the absolute best quality available in the World
In addition to continuously testing for heavy metals, algae, bacteria and virus in our harvest areas and the specific oyster batches, under a strict internal quality control system, and in cooperation with the Norwegian Food Safety Agency, Norwegian Shores is developing cutting-edge technology and methods for the cleaning of norovirus, specifically.
Norwegian Shores is working alongside the Norwegian University of Life Sciences and Innovation Norway to develop the most efficient methods and technology for rinsing oysters in particular. The work has already contributed to proprietary methodology for maximizing quality while minimizing risk of food-induced diseases associated with raw seafood.
