Three former competitors with long experience of prawn fishing teamed up in 2008 to form Coldwater Prawns of Norway, a joint sales and marketing company. Now, not many years later, they are Norway’s largest sales company for Norwegian-caught prawns and one of Norway’s fastest growing companies. Since they were founded in 2007/2008, the company has increased its market share of Norwegian-caught coldwater prawns from just under 45% to more than 90% today.
During the years the company has been in operation, CPN has become Norway’s biggest sales company for Norwegian-caught prawns. In 2011, the company started its own production company in Senjahopen, Norway. CPN’s operating revenues increased from NOK 15 million in its first year of operation in 2008 to an estimated turnover of NOK 430 million in 2014.
