Here in Latvia, the kingdom of the sprat, we’re so obsessed about fish that things aren’t as simple as they once were. We no longer talk about spices or methods of preparation. Instead, we tell stories and dream up tales about big fish, little fish, about brave fishermen and beautiful girls who know how to prepare fish that is so delicious that we’re praised from near and afar.
This passion for fish is the inspiration for the brand Amberfish*. The name refers to the Baltic Sea, Latvia’s artisanal traditions and, of course, the most valuable treasure of the Baltic Sea – amber.
The products we present to you are not only the result of generations of practice and refinement, they are beautiful tales to illustrate our passion for our trade.
*Amberfish for many years has been one of the favourite brands of sprats in Latvia.
See where fairy tales are created
Our masters, the best story-tellers on the mainland, possess the know how to create magical canned fish products, which quickly find their way to global customers. Our book of fairytales includes sprats, pilchards, herring and sardines, as well as popular fish, including salmon, cod, sturgeon and tuna, as well as seafood – mussels, squid and shrimp. The story of each inhabitant of the sea is unique, with each having its own character and adventure.
Our modern production cycle is environmentally friendly using the artisanal techniques passed on from one generation to the next. The low benzopyrene levels in our products not only meets, but exceeds the European food requirements. This is because product quality is our key value. We use only the highest-quality, fresh and chilled raw materials in the production process. Our modern production plant is equipped with machinery from globally recognised brands, including equipment for cold- and hot-smoking, frying, filling, breading, freezing, cutting, pasteurising, sterilising and packaging. Our production lines and units allow us to manufacture and pack products tailored to everyone's taste and every cherished fairytale.
Depending on the market, we are able to offer our factory brand - Amberfish - as well as any private brands preferred. We can pack our delicious fish products in cans or jars according to your taste, sealed with any type of lid and personalised with different labels and designs.
Our production capacity is approximately: canned fish - 50 000 packages per day, 1,5 million per month; cold smoked salmon – 1,3 tons per day, 40 tons per month; frozen fish products – 3,3 tons per day, 100 tons per month.
