Today, HitraMat is Europe's largest player in the processing of trock crab and handles 85 per cent of the volume captured along the Norwegian coast.

Crab products can be found at all grocery stores in Norway. Additionally, around 40 percent of our products are exported, with France as the main market.

We are proud to say that we deliver products of the highest quality, that we harvest in a sustainable manner, and that we are constantly developing a workplace that is a cornerstone company in our municipality.

We have many flexible and dedicated employees who deliver healthy and tasty products to consumers every day.
