“Throughout my 10 years in the seafood council, I have always had the goal of being able to represent Norway’s most important future industry in the market.”

Moreover, Rortveit highlights his determination as the NSC’s new envoy.

“It will be incredibly exciting to embark on this task, and I am particularly looking forward to working closely with the Norwegian players so that together we can build a strong preference for Norwegian seafood among importers and consumers.”
